By April last year we were irrigating......this year seems like it is a bit more conducive to growing.....so far.....!!!!! If you remember back to the summer of 2009 we had a really wet summer......a really wet winter and then February hit and it literally stopped raining. It seemed that it didn't rain again until about november (not quite true, but close)!!! The 2010 growing season turned out to be one of the hottest and driest on record. We made it through but not unscathed.....so what to do? I went and saw our friendly irrigation specialists at irrigation mart this morning and (keep your fingers crossed) problem solved!! I left with a drip irrigation system for the entire garden beds, the blackberries, blueberries, apples, pluots, figs and flowers. With a little help from mother nature we will have no more posts about plants dying or record droughts......let the growing begin!!!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
