Vine garden plants, like pumpkins, zucchini, cantaloupe etc. don’t do well with sprinkler systems. They like just their roots watered. Also we live in a state that is a desert and is approaching its 7th or 8th year of draught. So we need to control our water consumption even that used to water our garden. When I came across this idea here: http://www.providentliving.org.nz/gardening/bottle-drip-irrigation
/, I thought, brilliant! Today we planted our little garden, and we planted a bottle, to provide drip irrigation beside each plant. My Hubby was so excited because, we would be watering mainly the plants we wanted to water instead of every possible weed. Also we can add some plant fertilizer in to the bottle every 2 to 3 weeks, and thus feed the plants and not the weeds. Yes, let’s get started.
