Why would I do that? Well, the allotment rooolz say I am not allowed to water the greenhouse with a hosepipe because it is against the rooolz and probably because we haven't had nearly enough rain this winter, and rooolz is rooolz, or something. But I am allowed to fill the barrel with a hospipe. So I put the barrel on stilts and attached a hosepipe and now I can fill the barrel with a hosepipe while simultaneously watering the greenhouse with a hosepipe that comes out the bottom of the barrel. Cunning, neh? One only needs to do this when we have a longish dry spell and when the hell does that ever happen round here?
I haven't found a flaw in this plan yet but I expect the committee will when they watch me put this deviousness into action. I don't have a plan B. It's good that rain doesn't come from the sky in hosepipes isn't it? That would look awful.
