    I’m 19 days away from a 8 day vacation where my hand watered garden will perish. We have a sprinkler system but it won’t do the trick for our garden.

    I’m working towards a plan of a drip/tubing system to be done with the dragging the hose system currently in use. I’ll be running it off my faucet in the back yard, hooked to a timer ideally.

    I’ve got two 4x8 raised beds and a bunch of holes I amended and planted two per of tomatoes and peppers. These go along with an aggressive set of pumpkins taking aim on some passive watermelons, scattered about are marigolds and pots of cucumbers and squash.

    I’ve been told the kits are a waste of cash and craft my own. I’m open to ideas...

    Why wouldn’t a sprinkler on a timer keep things alive? Area doesn’t look bigger than a sprinkler could cover.

    Garden 2019

    Saturate the shit out of it before you leave. One week is nothing; I have a bed I gave up on a month ago that still has corn trying to survive. Plants can take abuse.

    If you want to get OCD, you could cover the beds in plastic to keep the moisture in, but that’s probably overkill.

    Can't you trade an oil change or a tire rotation for a watering person?

    You must have more friends then Jebus.

    Peas are raging, basil is limping, tomatoes are still small and green, nasturtiums have taken over everything except the buttonberries. The pinot noir vines are hidden.

    Oh man. Have the carcasses disgusted you yet? I put a ring of slug killer around the garden and seems to have stopped 90% of them. I still find the little slug fetuses on things and now i’m moving on to insect wars.

    1st garden has been a bust so far but I’m learning valuable info for next year.

    I like Deadline for snails and slugs, grey liquid/gel you put a perimeter with. Stuff is deadly, I had snails eating the shit out of my pumpkins, one squirt of a perimeter and that ended rather quickly. I’m having a lot of stuff eaten by bugs, luckily everything is growing fast enough to keep up with it.

    First red cherry tomato, many soon to follow.

    Lettuce kicking ass. We’ve been eating off that for a month, it’s the everlasting gobstopper.

    I was looking forward to trying scapes this year. They weren’t ready and then I got busy, turned around and looks like I missed? Did a fair amount of googling but waiting too long for scapes didn’t turn up much.

    Looks like the seeds have already formed- I have never had them that late but I’d assume they are stringy and tough.

    Did you try em?

    No but they seem pretty potent so I was thinking of cutting a bit from above and below the seeds.

    And so based on that are the bulbs ready to dig, or do you go by the “lowest of 6 leaves turning brown” method I read about online?

    I’m not one to ask-> We usually procrastinate until they are entirely brown!
