Okey Dokey, … Watering !

No biggee, … simple stuff.
Stop by a pet fish store pisk up plastic hose & fittings normally used for air supply, … they work for water.
Hang up a single ( or more ) overhead pulley that you can lift and drop a watering container.
Set up the hoses to drip.
It doesn’t get rid of the need to give them a good heavier watering from time to time, … but it works very well for inside house plants. Ends carting around little pitchers and having to keep on running to the tap to fill it up again,
Plants are a lot like fish, … matter of fact they thrive on water from fish tanks.
Main reason ( beyond fertilizer), … no chlorine.
When you fill & hang the water tank, … let it sit overnight and the worst of the chlorine vaporizes off, … no additives are needed but if you give them a chance they’ll probably try to sell you some.
Completely not needed, … even for fish tanks let water sit open to the air overnight before putting them in, …
Good luck, … looking for a bountiful harvest for myself.
Haven’t planted seeds since I wuz a kid, … big garden.
Planning on organizing it for next year, …
Got lots of questions myself, … done some really small container vegetable gardens, … can’t beat the taste !!!
