The heat. Gets so that I could only work in the yard by whatever area had shade.
No longer! Mom gave me a spare outdoor umbrella and stand. Made a huge difference today. Thanks Mom!
The existing drip system runs underground, through pvc, from the Bird of Paradise to the garden beds. I’ll modify that aspect later, as we got new outdoor water faucets installed.
I’m modifying the system further, at the bed sites, by replacing thin hosing with the standard drip hose. Running the hose to go up and over the edging of the bed, with spickots at each bed.
Having the spikots up and over the bed edge means I won’t have to get on my knees to turn on or off water to a particular bed.
Four beds now have water to the beds. Turned on the water to test for leaks. Had four explosions.
Next step, run tubing in the Iris bed. Poor plants..down to three in the bed.
To be continued…
