I've been a lazy gardener this year.  For one thing, I let the weeds in the back garden and alley garden get humongous.  Today, I pulled them all out of the back garden.

My legs were sore for a while after that project, but it looks so nice back there now.

Thanks Kathy.  I'll take some!

Spud, no rain ?? Have some of ours. Rain everyday. Flash floods. A town just east of us got 4.5" in 45 minutes. And it continues...

Randall, I've noticed besides vine vegetables keeping the weeds down, my strawberries and raspberries do also.

Daniel, I read your garden blog reply. I say to hell with your neighbors. Keep doing your own thing. Unlike you (and Don), I don't dare share photos of my garden. With sprawling vine vegetables, it looks horrible. Actually, it's not. The coverage (shade) keeps the weeds down.

Joan, I'm with you, being amazed at the gardeners here, and glad for their experience.

My hugelkultur mounds are only a year old, so I don't know yet how much water they save.  I'll let you know when I determine it.

A hat tip to all you gardeners and the experiments you conduct. 

Don, your gardens always amaze me, so neat, weed-free, and lush! 

Daniel, such excellent harvests you produce. What you sow you reap, big-time! Delicious meals from your food garden must make you feel very proud! 

Randy, my heart goes out to your daughter and her family after their catastrophes. Their newsletters continue to sound optimistic. I  like your water sequestering processes. 

Spud, your watering strategy makes good sense. Those saved dollars can go elsewhere. Do hugelkulturs help cut down your watering bill?

I haven't see any rain for 2 months.  I think it's been drier than usual here, but not much.  We get very little rain in the summer.

Spud, are you in the middle of a drought? I still use water from my big tubs that collect roof runoff. It's not as easy, but cheap! I haven't had to do it too often since it has been a relatively wet summer.

I think my problem is two-fold.  I've added more soaker-hoses to the garden, which delivers more water per hour, and forgot how long I've let the water run in the past.
