|Testing the seedling sprinklers|
After considering several designs, my son came out and came up with the best solution. Working together, we got 90% of the structure up in a little more than an hour. The final framing and building a plant bench I completed the next day. Additionally I created an automated irrigation system to control the moisture the seedlings get on a daily basis. Because it gets pretty warm in the sun and you don't want to skip a day of watering if you can't get to it for some reason. Automatic watering is the key to successful gardening I'm convinced. Last year I often spent several hours a day watering and even then it just wasn't consistent enough. Consistency is important. You go out of town and skip a few days your garden will look terrible if it doesn't rain.
Last month many seeds were planted and they are all doing very well. We planted a raised bed cucumber, bean and pumpkin section that was started with seeds and it's being watered daily with an automated watering system. So far so good.
