Good stuff, guys! I see possibilities here and perhaps an alleviation of some of my guilt. I held on to the old one as long as possible, but it finally became too much of a chore to work with it, what with every new kink quickly becoming an established old kink.
Now that I'm thinking alternative uses, well, I don't feel so bad about the disposal of the old one. I wonder whether it could be split, flattened, and used between layers on my raised beds so water doesn't seep out the sides. Just a thought I'm now having.
Too bad the manufacturers can't figure out a way to make hoses out of bind weed with dandelion ends. Then I'd have no guilt for having purchased the new hose.
You've got me thinking. Thanks!
