I came across some pictures of the garden when we first planted it. WOW! What a difference a couple of months can make. Here is the veggie and herb garden back in April:
Here it is now:
My husband installed a drip irrigation system which has helped tremendously. The plants are getting water just at the root system, where they need it and I never have to pick up the hose and water. Brilliant!
The system is based off a main head and has lines that branch off to each plant. The system is on a timer so we can adjust how much water the plants get and when they get it.
Now, will someone tell me what you can do with a ton of Basil. Yep, I've already made Pesto.
