How to bring blueberry bushes back to life?

I got a pair of blueberry bushes recently. They were potted and intended for ground planting, but I was unable to plant them. I was out of town for a week and a half and they went about that long with little or no water. When I returned, the leaves were brown and crispy and the soil was bone-dry. I put them in the ground and watered them copiously every day, but it's been a few days and they seem no better. Is there anything I can do to revive them, or am I out of luck?

Can I water my garden from two stories up?

I recently planted a vegetable patch. There is no outdoor water, so water must come from the apartment. My window is around thirty feet from the ground. Would it be bad for the plants if I misted them with water out the window? [more inside]

Fixing up my sprinkler system

SprinklerFilter: My garden watering system seems to be behaving badly. The system waters OK, but the backflow filter (a Febco 825Y) is leaking. I've turned the water supply off for the moment, but when it is on, it makes an odd kss-kss-kss sound, and there seems to be water coming out of the bottom somewhere. Any ideas? Do I need to replace the backflow valve? [more inside]
