Irriagating my gardens! Wow
I just had to share with someone that would appreciate it, how I spent yesterday. I irrigated all my gardens. What fun, and the satisfaction was beyond belief. I went to an irrigation store (RAINBIRD) and purchased 400 feet of flexible tubing and the small 1/4 tubing, stakes, emitters and spray heads (some for 1 gallon per hour and some for 1/2 gph. Having no idea exactly what I was doing, I used common sense as my guide. I had help straightening the large tubing and putting it in place. Then from that tube, we used the 1/4" tube to connect our choice of either 180 degree spray heads OR the emitters for individual plants. Useing emitters for roses, hygranges, and other plants that like the water and the spray for general overall watering. Took all day but using a TIMER, I will save a lot of time hand watering with the hose. I spend at least 2 hours every time I water and I'm going away for a 6-8 weeks and need to know my babies will at least get some water. Very easy job once we got going and didn't cost much at all. A lot less than replacing all these plants. Thanks for listening.
