Time For Some Gardening……. Garden City, That Is, And Tentative Schedule

I cleaned out our current Eagle list except for one that I couldn't do because the shut-off tube was full of debris and I couldn't find a place to blowout from. Many times we can use a sprinkler head to blow them out, but not if we can't turn off the water valve. Today and […]

Sprinkler Blowouts Continue In Meridian 83646

Sprinkler blowouts went well for Compressor 1, but not so good for Compressor 2.  We finished 19-20 with Compressor 1, and would have had them all had it not been for not being able to find valve boxes.  Compressor 2 only managed to complete 6 of the 20 on the list before having a meltdown.  […]
