Step 4: Add the electronic timer

The last step was to plug in the timer, program it, and I was done!  I used an outdoor-rated electronic timer as opposed to a mechanical one so I could precisely adjust the time the water runs.  I have begun by having the water come on at 4pm each day and run for 10 minutes.  As we move into the hotter part of the summer I will probably have to lengthen this time.

Now that I'm out of the manual watering business, guess I'll have to find something else to do. 

Or,  I could just get even more lazy..........
