Cool, Cool, Water

Ever since we put in our raised beds we have had a problem with keeping the crops watered whenever we were out of town. In the last few weeks I ran a buried 3/4″ copper line from the house down to the raised beds. Each of the four raised beds now has a hose spigot as shown here. There is also a tap ready for the potting sink we will be putting in next spring. I ran water in the line today and found no leaks – that was a relief. The drains worked well assuring us that the lines can be emptied for winter. Next spring we will add a watering timer to each spigot and soaker hoses or sprinklers will provide the produce with cool, cool, water.
