The Best Ways To Water Your Plants

We need some rain. That is a statement that I think we can all agree on. Looking at Natalie Noah's 8 day weather forecast we might get a shower but I am not holding out much hope. My yard has gotten all nice and crunchy and I am walking that fine line between saving it or spending my savings on a watering bill.
