I just bought the COOLEST thing!

I found an adaptor to fit a garden hose to my kitchen sink! :) It cut my watering time and effort down to about a 10th of what it was before :) And no more lugging heavy watering cans around!!!!

Oh definitely worth it! I've had a hose for awhile now (a "Reel Easy") and just leave my adapter on the sink since I also need it for my Pur filter cartridge.

If you can find the Reel Easy hose, I'd recommend it. It's 50ft long of smaller diameter hose (which makes it lighter), but it has a standard hose fitting on it, will take any of the standard nozzles or wands, and the pressure is very good on it in my experience. Plus it rolls up into its own storage/carrying unit and it can stay outside and handle the weather very well too.

Oh I would love one of these, I'm already getting tired of going back and forth to my sink to fill up the water can. Where can I get one and what's the offical name of it?

I got mine at Home Depot - can't remember what it was actually called off hand, but if you tell them what it is you need to do, they can help you find cost like $5.00
