"Are you lonely without the constant presence of something to fix?"

Owning a house means you're never without something to fix..
I've been entertaining myself with rebuilding a rotten old lawn sprinkler system, hours of fun and mud.
The drip system at our old house worked fine for several years until the dog decided the black pipes were really dangerous snakes, that had to be wrestled into tangled submission..

We spend our time gauging whether to drain the rain barrel before tonight's hard rain, or whether we need to water (by hand) this evening what with tomorrow's forecasted showers.

To stop the dogs eating the irrigation systems, application of hot chili juice is very effective.

It appears your drip system will reach the squash just fine. Your neighbor's squash, as well.
