Is there any vegetables you grow without irrigation?
This year I am taking part in the Dept of Ag Plasticulture program. My irrigation & plastic mulch is going down tomorrow. However I have been thinking about items that are going to be hard to remove from the plastic mulch at the end of the season. Corn & okra are 2 that come to mind.
Is there anything that you have succesfully (in a year milder than last) without irrigating? Right now I am considering Okra with 12-18 inch spacing. Still unsure about the corn, since I bought some $$$$$ corn seed.
Just a note about my farm land. Last yr even with the extreme drought our hay pasture stayed green & was cut twice. Last month we hit water setting a fence post. We have some nice bottom land that even grew volunteer clemison sweets without me watering them. (I am sure if I would have tried to plant them the grasshoppers would have eaten them & the heat killed them).
