What happened to the sunny day that was forecast?
The sun did finally burn off the fog about 1:00 this afternoon and guess what I did after lunch?
Bed 1 was my focus today. I finished setting up the water line.
|Overhead sprinklers to start with. Once the seedlings are a little bigger I will add soaker hoses . |
The sprinklers have an on and off switch so I can control what area of the bed is watered.
After making sure everything was in working order it was time to do some transplanting.
|Testing the watering system.|
I planted the carrots, the bok and pak choy.

I hope the carrots don't go into shock from transplanting the seedlings I started in the greenhouse. This is the first time I'm trying this method.
I also completed the water lines in bed 3. Now beds 2, 3 and 4 are all ready to be set on the timer.
