Irrigating Greenhouse

The mobile high tunnel is now over the heat loving summer crops.  And even though we have gotten lots of rain recently, very little of it goes into the greenhouse – even when Ken opens it up all the way.  So, Ken irrigates the plants.  He moves hoses and uses an irrigation pump to get water from the irrigation pond to the plants

 

Then the water moves from his trenches between the plants to the plant roots.  Greenhouses require funds to construct, maintenance, and special care for the plants inside; we feel that early and late stretch of season is worth it!
