water in my backyard

waste of water II

Well, you know? There is plenty of things I didn’t know about this place, when I moved in here. One of them is that I have an occational water fountain right outside my window in my backyard. The first time I found out about it or rather noticed it, was quite weird. I woke up at 11 or around lunch time and I heard the noise of water all around me. Getting up, driven by paranoia and a feeling for “Oh shit! The washing machine broke down and half your place is under water!” it took me like five minutes (If you pardon, I just woke up. ;)) before I realized that this was outside of my pad.

So today I thought that since others blog plenty about water, we at Berlin’s metblog needed some too. So here is my share of it, a picture of my little backyard fountain. What strikes me though is, that my grandma always told me to water plants when the sun is not shining on them. You shall either water before 10 AM or maybe after 4 PM, otherwise it’s a little counter productive and the sudden water coolness is not to healthy for your plants. (Hey, and don’t tell me you never learned something reading this blog!!! ;))

Then also, regarding the usage, more or less recently (give or take 10 years) they started using methods on fields where they water plants with very little water, over a longer timeframe. (Alter Hausfrauentrick: Make little holes in hose and put it accross the area you want to water.) Two things that didn’t sneak up here yet. So this little fountain is the biggest waste of water as of yet and I dislike paying for that very much (and somehow I have to at the end of each year ::: bullshitmaintenance).

I think Frede and his green friends should march against this profuseness of a very important resource in my backyard. How about it, guys? I will also provide phone numbers and address of my landlord for protest letters too. Please contact me! :D
