I would use well water if those were my choices. I hope my garden does well, too. I got to put it in yet. I use my deck too, I got large containers for tomatoes. I would like to do a separate patch for herbs, like I used to do, now, time is of the essence. I used to grow 5 different types of basil and sell it to the neighboring restaurant which my neighbor owns. I grew alot of it, all because I love to do it. I love the smell. It overpowers the socks.
That picture, avatar, is my newborn deer. It was blazing hot that May, so I sheltered him. I woke up and nearly, tripped on him going to the mailbox. What a neat present.
The road is right beyond it, so, I wrote on the box which you can't see, " One buck to see the buck." and, a walker, taped a buck to it! Lol.
