|This morning I weeded garlic for a while, then hooked up some drip lines. It took about the same amount of time to hook up the lines as it would have to hand water the rows, however, it will save time in the future. I had some leaks to fix and find that regulating the pressure is quite tricky without a pressure regluator. This year I used 3/4 inch line for a mainline and at present only have about 500 ft of lines dripping. In the past I used half inch line. There is a big difference in the amount of water the larger line will carry. I need to mark the valve to know how to duplicate it since I will be turning it off to run other things. I have one of those manifolds on the faucet that has 4 hookups, each with their own off/on valve.
While weeding this morning I discovered 2 more surviving raspberry plants. They are tiny! Grow little bushes, grow!
Yesterday was quite warm, near 80. Another weather disturbance brought clouds overnight and temperatures only up to about 56. Tomorrow? It's anybody's guess!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
