Lazy Gardening

Well, the vegetable garden is thriving. The tomatoes are growing, the peppers are coming in nicely, and we’ve already harvested a ton of cucumbers and zucchini.

Piping from the hose

The problem is watering the garden. Normally, this should be something very easy, but I am extremely complacent when it comes to watering the garden regularly. What’s a lazy guy to do?

Enter the irrigation system from Drip Depot.

This product allowed me to set up a full irrigation system to water each plant individually. No more worrying as to whether or not the vegetable plants have enough water. Once connected to the timer on my hose, I can schedule regular waterings for the plants. It cost me about $130 for the kit to irrigate up to 4 beds. I do have a lot of extra hose left over, that I may use to irrigate other plants in the yard.
