Today's Project from an old link of Tom's

tinael01(10A)January 15, 2012

I just put together a very basic pvc watering system from a link Tom posted last year. I have never in my life used a power tool - but it was a blast. :) Now I am dangerous. I am also putting together his in-ground tomato and pepper buckets this weekend. Some of you know I'll be in India for 3 weeks and I am trying to keep the plants alive while I am gone!

from around the garden:

Here is a link that might be useful: PVC drip system

Great job, and the plants are gorgeous! I never could get my Florida Flame Vine to bloom. I think my yard was cursed.

Thanks for the link. We made a much smaller version a few years ago, but now that I have more plants in different places in the bed, it's time to do it over. I'll get some tips from that link.

Thank you everyone! I was pretty proud.

The Flamevine gets a lot of water from the garden. Before that it didn't bloom much.

Tom did you spot the little lucy seedlings? Baby bubba didn't come up and now I realize I've started the okra too soon. The little rows have grain amaranth from ECHO in them. I won't have a clue what to do with it when it's harvest time...what was I thinking?

Sorry Tina, I'm not sure who got the Little Lucy seeds but they are gone. For here you were a little early for okra, I usually direct sow mid-February. Did I give you some seeds for Stewart's Zeebest? If so start with them when you get back.

woops - my message wasn't clear. I really do need to slow down!! Tom you gave me the Little Lucy and if you squint and look really close you can see the seedlings in the corners of the little pipes and big pipes. I got pretty excited when I saw your other post with photos of little lucy - what a gem! Thanks so much!
