Looking for some good inexpensive ideas to keep the vegetable garden watered! We are from Florida and migrate to Amesbury Mass end of May and stay till end Sept.This is our 4th year doing this, we started a roadside organic veggie stand so we have a few veggie gardens scattered throughout our land, wherever we can get a nice sunny spot. Watering is a big issue, our bill last year shocked us...it was the first year we took over the place on our own.
Our main garden is about 40x40 feet..we have one of those tripod sprinklers in the middle that hits most of the garden pretty well, but misses one side..so I go over it with gallon jugs. We are experimenting with rain barrels in another garden. We don't want to do an in ground irrigation because we are not here 7 months of the year and don't know what would happen to it. Any ideas would be appreciated :)
