And not just because they include two Tootsie Pops with each order placed at their Amazon.com store!
Given the arrival of DC’s first heat wave of the year, I’m very glad we struggled to get the drip irrigation system ready over Memorial Day weekend. We try to rotate crops every year, but given how few boxes we have total, this makes it hard to use the same hose configuration year after year. Oh, did I mention they are all raised beds? We go through a lot of elbow connectors!
But all the expense and planning pays off when the temps hit 90+ with no reliable rain in the forecast and baby vegetable transplants in the ground! The drip irrigation minimizes wasted water and splashing on leaves, so it’s healthier for the garden too!
