It has been about a month now since I planted my garden and it is growing great! The weather here has really warmed up and my plants are thriving.
On Saturday Isaac and I spent an hour or so weeding the garden and then went swimming and enjoyed the sunshine. I took a few pics and later in the evening we went down to water and Leanne came along to take some more pics.
I took this pic from my deck. You can see the big pond and the small pond. The small pond is actually bigger than it looks.. lots of stuff has grown up and around the pond this spring and we have not cleared it away yet. The little pond is actually a spring and it is what I use to water the garden. The water is piped underground over to the garden..
I then use PVC pipe to water each row. I dig a little ditch near or around the row of veggies and then we water each row by letting the water run down the row and then connecting the next piece of pipe at the top of the row to water the next row. This method works the best as there is not enough water pressure for sprinklers and the spring pond has too much debris to use soaker hoses…
Sometimes the ditches that we dig will break through so Isaacs favorite job is to get some dirt and pour it on the breach to keep the water flowing in the right direction.. He likes this job because he can get all wet and muddy.. LOL.. a little boy thing for sure!!
Now the garden is all watered!!
Time to jump in the pond for a swim…
