Wednesday Working – Caged Garden

We made a little progress on the caged garden this weekend.  Now it has irrigation and a pavers:

Water pipes installed and paved paths down.

And the shadow on the wall is me proving once again I am clueless as a photographer.

There will be three rows of planter boxes with two paths between them.  I dug a shallow trench for the pipes and connected that to the main irrigation valves so this area will be controlled by the water timer system.  On top of each pipe is an eight port drip head.  Each port will connect to a 1/4 inch drip line that will provide water to the plants.  We live in the land of the drought so water has to be carefully rationed.

Irrigation pipes are centered on the rows where the planter boxes will go.

This weekend I’ll build doors for the cage.  We have two planter boxes to move in and I have a bunch of wood to make more.  We’ll start with nine boxes and see how it goes.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,
Andrew

    Very nice! I envy your irrigation system, as I spent HOURS this summer with hose in hand. Goal for next summer: install a pump and hose from the river!

    Best,
