Title: Watering
Post by: Maingun on May 25, 2022, 04:07:28 pm
Before our EarthBox experience, we did gravity watering.  We got the unique gravity soaker hoses, a 350 gallon drum and a bunch of pvc pipe.  We put the water drum raised up about 6 feet higher than the mounds.  We filled it from our deep water well.  It worked well.  Well, with the EarthBoxes, we wanted to see if we could hook up a hose and fill them from the water drum!  It works great!  From leaving the house, going down to the garden, filling them up and going back to house takes 7 minutes!  We come back later in the day to do plant maintenance.
