The very hot dry summer has decided me. We have to have some form of irrigation!  We had planned to put in the piping and do the actual irrigation later, but are forging ahead now with drip irrigation.

I was tasked with digging the trenches_BLG0939 While Craig did the plumbing work_BLG0949 He has put a tap in at each box so that watering could be controlled according to the crop in that box.  Behind him are the butternut pumpkins that I had started earlier in bags and have now planted out. There is also maize there.  IMG_4138The “pumpkin patch” I am going to grow things here that require more space than can be provided by the boxes_BLG0986
