I feel cheated, how did it make it to Va as fast as me in the next state. USPS has been picking up the pace to stay competitive. I saw a delivery on a Sunday and asked my mail guy about it, he said USPS picked up the Amazon contract and they had to deliver on Sundays. At least they're trying to make a profit.

When UPS went on strike back in the 90's many folks I ordered from used USPS and everything was just as good.
I wished they would have stayed with them.
I am NOT happy with UPS one bit.

I have had Fedx and UPS tell me bald faced lies and the driver confirmed it and proved it to me.

HAHA!!! I have to figure out how I want to rig it up. I haven't figured that out yet. I can build a bench to mount the feeder to the side and use the top to set a 5 gallon bucket on and that would be easy to move if I had to.

I like figuring out stuff as much as the next guy, but when there is a $30 solution it only warrants so much effort.

Mazzei appear to be the standard in this space.

Yep that or the hozon is the ticket if you have the water pressure to run them. Some don't have the pressure.

I think the MG thing is a pretty good deal if you can hack it and use other fertilizers.
I still haven't bought one to see what kind of orifice is in it or if it can be changed or remotely connected.

Time is money and then your expertise is involved Worth. I certainly couldn't cut them here.

Done...
