Wednesday Work – Irrigation, Drawers, and Cats

The weather here is finally good enough to allow me to start on this year’s garden infrastructure projects. First up is irrigation. Living in the desert means irrigation systems are required for gardening. Water doesn’t fall from the sky here. This year I’m adding new watering zones to better manage water usage:

One of three valves on the manifold

It will go here

I made progress on my pull out shelves:

First 2 of 14 – just 12 more to go

Sliders waiting to be used

And now, a few kitty pictures:

Boots in the catio look at birds

Socks getting some exercise

Well that’s it for this time. I’ve got a big project about to start, so there will be more soon.

    Before they completely turn our taps off here in Southern California we are in the middle of installing a huge drip irrigation project. My husband is doing it himself, and I’m just hoping it doesn’t do him in! But my plants will be happy! Good work and progress on your property, Andrew. You inspire progress!

  3. Do you think those cats are happy living with you? Asking for a friend (because they sure look happy).

    It must be an intriguing question to solve. How to make the very best of the water you have,and have perhaps already used once.

    • It’s a challenge to figure out what to water and what not to and what is it going to cost. Our city does treat waste water and industrial users and things like golf courses use it, but so far they’ve not piped it back to homes. They might be doing that soon.

  6. It’s all looking good! Those pull-out drawers are a big project, but they’re going to be great when they’re done. And thanks for the kitty pics – they’re so cute! I particularly like Socks sweating it out on the exercise bike. πŸ˜‰
