The Vine Garden

Mr Farmer thought I needed to do a post on how we water our vine garden. It is roughly 1/4 mile from the house in an area with no access to running water. We have a water system out there to catch rain when it rains. However, this year since we've had no rain, our rain barrel is empty. We needed to come up with another way to water every week or two.

This is what we came up with.

We fill the barrel with water up at the house.

It amazes me how much water pressure we can get.

On the right are Burrell melons, like a cantaloupe. On the left are Orangeglo watermelons.

Not many of the pumpkins have germinated. It's just too dry.

In the foreground are my zucchini. Behind them are acorn squash. Beyond that are cantaloupe. We brought in a small cantaloupe the other night.
