July Garden

We started our summer plants a little later than normal since our spring veggies were so productive. Here's a picture of our garden this morning. We installed a pvc pipe irrigation system in the late spring. The pipes go down every row with 1/16 inch holes drilled every 12 inches. They are separated by shut off valves at the top of each row.

You can see the red knob under the zinnia plant. We usually run water on 2 sections at a time. This has been a huge time and water saver. It was very easy to install and cost around $100 for supplies.
