Growing Smart II
Now I know what I'm doing and I'm so excited! I can't wait for the sun to come back out so I can set the rather stiff tubing in the sunshine and warm it up. This will make watering this spring a real snap. Plus, I can teach this skill to the women here and they will be more knowledgeable, too. An added bonus is that once I have the organic garden done I can also do the meditation garden and the juniper hill. Watering with hoses is such a heavy task and now I find out how unnecessary it is! All one needs is a bit of relatively inexpensive tubing and a bit of knowledge.
Between this irrigation system and our rain barrels we'll have the whole watering thing kicked!
Oh! This has nothing to do with our garden, but I participated in NaNoWriMo 2010 and finished so I thought I'd mention this here. If you don't know what National Novel Writing Month is, it's simply a challenge one undertakes to write a complete novel in 30 days during November. It must be 50,000 words. So I did it! I did make one of my main characters a serious organic gardener ;-)
