Apr 30,2008 (WetWednesday)

We were right about the weather yesterday.  It rained all day and the plants in the RainyDayGarden loved it.  We took advantage of a brief pause in the rain to do some more tests of the Nikon D40 and lenses. 

The temperature was a bit cool for the tulips and the frittillaria, but at least it wasn't freezing!  The grape hyacinths are in full bloom.  The hostas are just getting started. 

May is just around the corner and we are all looking forward to the warmer weather.  This Winter felt a lot longer because we skipped our annual Spring Break trip to South Beach.  We won't make that mistake again! [Permalink] - Wan Chi Lau


Apr 29,2008 (NozzleTechTuesday)

The April showers have finally arrived in Boston.   The timing is perfect as we did a lot of work in the RainyDayGarden this weekend. We got a nice cold soak yesterday.  Today looks to be more of the same. 

While we don't do a lot of watering of the garden, we do love cool garden gadgets.  On our last outing to Home Depot, we picked up an awesome looking nozzle from Orbit Irrigation Products.

This is the XL-Streem Super Magnum Hose Nozzle.  It has a fully adjustible spray, adjustible pressure, and a large on/off lever.  This nozzle looks and feels like a scaled down version of something one would find on a fire truck :-)

Hopefully we will need to water as little as possible, but when we have to water the garden we are now prepared.  Hmmm, it might be pretty good for washing the car as well.  Hey, interns... [Permalink] - Wan Chi Lau

MiracleGro LiquaFeed Advance is the new no mess, no measure, no fuss way of making sure the plants in your garden gets the proper level of nutrients.

The starter kit comes with two bottles of pre-measured LiquaFeed and a custom spray nozzle.  Each bottle of fertilizer can feed about 400 sq ft.

The nozzle has four selectable spray options and can switch instantly between feeding and watering.  The nozzle also has a locking trigger for extended use.

Feeding may now as simple as attaching a nozzle, insert bottle, and sray!  We are looking forward to checking out the MiracleGro LiquaFeed Advance system in the RainyDayGarden this year.  [Permalink] - Wan Chi Lau
