Vacationing during peak growing season!

We are being treated to a free vacation to Hawaii for 2 weeks in late June (now, REALLY! would you turn that down?)

We have a place for the pup, some neighbor kids to feed the cats, but no one to tend the garden! We do have a neighbor that will pick, but probably won't have time to water .

I've used soaker hoses in the past, and had a system set up for 4 beds with 4 faucets to control each bed (different watering conditions), but my garden has expanded since then. I can buy more soaker hoses for the newer beds.

Have any of you had good/bad luck with timers? I guess all of the beds would receive the same amount of water over the same amount of time, but it IS only 2 weeks.

Any other ideas? Nancy
