Drip Irrigation

Drip irrigation is a form of watering which can be implemented in gardens for a relatively low price tag while keeping water usage and waste to a minimum.

The simplest and cheapest form of drip-irrigation I’ve found is probably the bucket drip. Buckets can be found for free from local businesses and fast-food restaurants, while tubing, drip-controls and connectors can be found at local hardware stores for reasonable prices.
Larger reservoirs can also be used in a similar way.

Drip-irrigation supplies necessary water to plants without wasting precious water resources through overwatering and subsequent evaporation and runoff.

I am many, many things- far too many to list here. But primarily- I am a Roman Catholic, wife, and mother. I believe that finding our way to common ground is the journey most worth taking.
