Drip Irrigation System

Drip Irrigation System

With all the trees around my house it's hard to grow vegetables, but our deck gets maybe 6 hours of sun a day. In past years I've put up with watering each pot at least once a day. This year my husband ordered drip system equipment from the Drip Depot online. Of course it's rained more since I've put out the plants than it has in the past two years, so we haven't had to use it very much! I asked him to make the individual pot connections a bit long so I could move the pots to follow the sun.

Excellent idea. Will probably use water more efficiently.

I do all my gardening in large oak barrels along the kennel entrance fence. I watered myself silly in the 3 years past. Hurray for the rain. Your maters are much bigger than mine. Maureen

So you did do it, great! That is like washing a car and it is sure to rain!

Very Hi-tech, I'd be putting wheels on those pots, they look heavy.
