One community gardener fashions an irrigation “keg” system for his plants-just in time for Memorial Day Weekend.

Mini Irrigation Keg Recipe

(please note, it is important with a primitive system like this that the water be above the irrigated land so gravity can do its business and that the tubing be loose, clear from blockages and in a natural slightly curled position.)

1-community garden blot

1-medium sized bucket

1-water spigot

10ft-irrigation tubing

1-medium sized box or stand

rocks, bungee cords, bamboo sticks

couple hours of your time :)

Further inspection reveals delicate tubing with interspersed notches that release water a drop at a time.

Complete the installation with a light colored wind wall.

No worries while you are away for Memorial Day!
