Fio doesn't like waste, which translates into trying to find uses for those ubiquitous plastic milk bottles that take up so much room in the trash can. Lately, she's been using them to store urine, which she and Husband sprinkle around the planting beds to repel foraging by deer and other wildlife, but now she's also using them to store bath water for spot watering of the landscape.
Yes, with the drought in full swing, watering restrictions are more stringent than ever. But Fio paid too much for those plants to let them die so out she trots every morning and evening, milk bottles of water in hand.
The verbenas lift their heads to greet her, and the mountain laurels sigh in relief.
