The weather has been warming up and I’ve been into the garden a bit more than my shop. I’ve been working on redoing our irrigation system. Years ago we setup a drip system. It mostly works, but has proved to be a maintenance headache. The drip heads clog, the lines break, the cats think it’s their job to knock drip heads out-of-place – seems like Heather is always needing to fix something. The other big problem is that the water in our area is hard, very hard, that is with lots of minerals that constantly clog up the works.
So I am refitting some areas of the irrigation system with more traditional bubblers and spray heads. It’s all run off a timer so we can control how often and how long they run.
First step is to dig up the existing lines and add a few more risers:
When the new spray heads are in place, we’ll plant a few more shrubs and a bit of ground cover.
Here’s a new bubbler on our plum-tree:
Finally, here is Spotty Kitty watch what I am doing:
If you need me – I’ll be out front digging a trench.
