Hose Guide:
Take a piece of rebar and cut with hacksaw to about 1.5-2ft. Drive in the ground with a hammer or suitable tool leaving about 6-8 inches of rebar above ground. I like to use electric fence posts from the local farmers coop. Cut your garden hose to appropriate length and slip over exposed rebar. Makes a nice rolling hose guide whereever you need one. Easy to pull up and move as needs require.

Watering Can Extender:
I have many plants under lights. Some are hard to reach for watering. I cut an appropriate length of garden hose and slip over the spout and it gives me easy access to water those hard to reach plants. I guess it depends on what kind of watering can you use.

I love the watering can spout extender! Smiling I always have to move plants to get to the ones further on the shelf. Now I will be able to reach them all! Hurray!

Forgot to add on hose guide idea: Scratch enough soil away from the rebar so the hose piece can go a couple of inches below ground. This should keep the garden hose from causing the hose piece to rise up and garden hose rubbing against rebar. Hope I'm not making this too complicated. Rolling my eyes.

@quercusnut, not too complicated at all! But you can, if you'd like, edit your original post to include this part too which would be great! That way, no one will miss it if they don't read past the original idea post! Crossing Fingers!
