Another round of photos for your enjoyment.
“Well, even if you did I rather not come out. I’m right in the middle of my afternoon beauty sleep if you don’t mind.”
I can’t help myself, just had to ad lib and wonder what goes on in that pretty little head of hers.
Enjoying the spring sunshine.
A shipment of ollas arrive. I don’t know about you but they just look so lovely there in the garden as they are.
“The buried clay pot or pitcher method of irrigation is one of the most efficient systems known and is ideal for gardeners and small farmers. Buried clay pot irrigation uses a buried, unglazed clay pot filled with water to provide controlled irrigation to plants as the water seeps out through the clay wall at a rate that is influenced by the plant’s water use. This leads to very high efficiency–considerably better than drip irrigation and many times better than conventional surface irrigation” – David A. Bainbridge
We’ll be using some of these ollas in our garden here at the urban homestead. Ollas are a simple, ancient method of saving water and yet increasing the harvest.
For the past two or more years, we have been using them in the garden. See a clay pot irrigation bed at work
Transplanted tomatoes wait for their time to be planted in the garden.
