See attachment. I have bought 400 feet of drip line with emitter holes and an 8-outlet manifold. The 2019 veggie garden will average 16 feet across and 45 feet long, so that gives me 8 50-foot lengths of drip line, spaced 2 feet apart.Welcome, and wow, it sounds like the gardening bug has bitten you hard.
Before you get too far along next spring, you might want to think about laying down some soaker hoses, so you can have a good way to conserve water while getting the water to the roots where it needs to be.
hehehe. The wife has vetoed indoor planting, but is getting me a mini-greenhouse for Christmas, to be placed on the deck, and we already have an appropriate heating mechanism for it. I hope to do a ton of growing from seeds out there.If you have room indoors, you will be amazed at how easy and cheap it is to grow practically all your plants from seeds. That way, when the birds, squirrels and rabbits eat your plants, you will be mad enough to murder them with your bare hands.
