I just found the most amazing thing at Home Depot!
And it was on sale for only ten bucks from $20. It is still worth the buy for $20 for sure.
This is the first “as seen on tv” thing I have ever bought and I’m glad to report it works fantastically.
The hose automatically retracts – you can also lock it at different lengths so it isn’t tugging at you when you are watering your plants. I also love the fact I can point the nose right into the ground and water lower down so the leaves do not get wet. Every year all my melon/cucumber/squash leaves fall victim to powdery mildew so hopefully this will help.
The Water genie seems to be constructed pretty well and is pretty sturdy. It comes out of the box pre-assembled beside the spout head which you simply plug in. It is pretty much the same size as my two gallon watering can and probably feels as heavy as the two gallon can when it is half full. I’m so happy I don’t have to run back and fourth refilling my can anymore, as it is summer, and my garden is thirstier than ever.
