Rain! Rain! Go away! Come again some other day!

There’s a bright side to all the rain we’ve received across the state.  Less time spent watering those pesky flower pots and hanging baskets!  

Here’s a common hazard found in many public work shops in Minnesota.  Summer weather brings with it a need to water all those plantings.  Traditional hoses pose a slip, trip and fall hazard if they are not stored neatly off the floor. 
Lugging long and heavy garden hoses around also poses an ergonomic risk.  Here is one city’s solution.  They picked up some expandable, lightweight hoses – as seen on TV!  Here is 300 feet of hose in a 5 gallon bucket.  The Garden Club recently received a donation from the city of (you guessed it) traditional garden hose!
