Got Drip?

Leave a comment

One of this season’s projects involved getting a drip irrigation system installed at the plot. Spink did the research and we went to E&M Supply out in Middlefield, OH to get the bulk of the materials. Drip irrigation is a better use of water and puts the water closer to the roots than a sprinkling system does.

The source of the water has a filter and pressure regulator

This is connected to the pipes and allows us to set a timer and amount of time to water.

This is how it is laid out in the plot. The red valves can be turned off individually as needed.
