The Watering Time Begins

I installed a drip irrigation system--bought piece-by-piece at Lowe's and easily installed--in March, but we've had such an amazingly wet spring and early summer that I have only used it very sparingly. Now, it looks like the rain days may have passed us by.

I'm starting to have to water the garden now; however, I'm using water collected in our back 75 gallon rain barrel to feed the veggies, so still, not turning on the drip.

When it does get turned on, by the way, it works great. I highly recommend installing one for flower and vegetable beds. Veggies especially are certainly not xeriscape plants...

UPDATE: um, not so much. It's 6.21.07 and still raining away this summer...
