Notice a Theme? Testiness Maybe?

OH GREAT. NOW, while troubleshooting, I discovered that earlier in the spring, when a storm blew the rain barrel off its perch, something punched a hole up about the 45-gallon mark, so any water that goes in above that level, which would be about 10 gallons, leaks right back out – and not onto the plants. Don’t come over just now, ok, because I can’t get this mean, glowering look off my face. Reminds me of that carnival barker jingle, spoken fast, like you’re selling a used car –“It’s JoJo, the dog-faced boy. He walks, he talks, he crawls on his belly like a reptile. Stand back, sonny. He might bite-cha.”  It’s not pretty. Jus’ sayin’

The dysfunctional hose and barrel.

    Just chew several packs of chewing gum and stick it in the hole…maybe dry it off first…the barrel not the gum.

    Are those German Johnson tomatoes per chance?
