Fio came home from a meeting yesterday to find that Husband had rigged up the bathwater-siphoning system he'd been mulling over for the past week. And it didn't cost a cent. He used an old hose, some rank-looking tubing, and an old pond motor. According to Husband, it's all weatherproof and stores in a neat little corner of the balcony. Not only that, but it works! Fio was able to water the whole front planting bed--generously!
Little did Fio guess how important her nightly wallow would become to the local eco-system.
