Setup a drip irrigation system and decided to shoot a crummy little video to share on my facepage.

Hey TJ,

If you raise the buckets up, you will have more pressure. This will get water to the center emitters more evenly. Those emitters are designed to operate at around 15-20psi, which would be around 35+ ft.

Also, 2 five gallon buckets is not nearly enough, unless it's filled 3 times a day in the summer. You should be irrigating to 60" per year per season (mostly April - august). For your plants, next year, I would look into getting two 55gal drums and filling those at least twice a week. I am running one drum, twice a week, for my 8 plants.

If you want more info, pm me. I'm down in sheboygan county.

MT

Thank you MT,

The reason why the buckets are down low is so that they are not visible (due to the grass) from the land owner's driveway. I would love to generate more head pressure, but then it would look tacky and I don't want to upset Brian or his old lady. I've gotta work with what I have available to me, atleast until I figure out something down here in Oshkosh.

I hear you on that....no one really likes blue barrels all over there yard!

I painted mine a forest green color, and they really don't catch your eye at all. You should do a google search for "painted rain barrel". There are tons of ways to dress up a plastic drum...here is a neat one:


Or, you could cover them with slats of barn board or something, with a little construction adhesive, making them look like little wooden water towers. Quick search found this one...


We're getting off topic here now....but I checked my Centennials this morning and they are just starting to turn a little brown. I might be harvesting by the weekend!!!!

My second and final harvest went well with these 3rd year plants. Chinook on left screen / Cascade on the right.

Apparently I need to move to the west coast, my cones just barely started forming on one plant.
