Happy Monday and welcome to part eight of “Not of the garden variety," a weekly, product-centric series that's all about exceptional, agrarian-minded outdoor living accessories and odds and ends — items for in and around the garden that you won't find in the backyards of every Tom, Dick and Harry.
After last week's installment of "Not of the garden variety" where I featured a few standout watering cans
ranging in price from under $10 to over $100, I thought it would be only appropriate to follow up with a few more irrigation-minded garden accessories. This week, my eye is on assorted water-conserving devices and nontoxic hoses that won't leach chemicals into your prized veggies ... or into your mouth if your petunias aren't the only things that are parched in the garden.
