How to Fix a Leaky Hose

How to repair a leaky soaker hose.

Holey doesn't even begin to describe my soaker hose. I know, it's full of tiny holes so the water can slowly leak out and water the garden, but it's a bit more than that.

I didn't use my soaker hose last year; when I pulled it out of the shed last spring I realized it had a huge gash in it. So it sat coiled up in a corner of the garden for a year until this spring, when I decided I'd repair it.

Silver Sunday

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- the Lord, my Father
- my dad
- my husband
- my son, who this year is a dad too
- my sons-in-law
Silver Sunday

Buy the truth and do not sell it—
    wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
The father of a righteous child has great joy;
    a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
Proverbs 23:23-24 NIV


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams
of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. Join me here:

Harvesting and Curing Onions

The first plants to go in my garden this year were onion plants. Not sets, like I've always grown in the past. Instead, a friend had given me a coffee can full of onion plants. Enough to fill an entire 4x8-foot raised bed.
