It works!

Our first demonstration plot, the kitchen garden at Ravi’s farm, is coming along nicely. This week the beds looked lush and full and green—so we decided we probably should weed them.
Now the green is a bit more sparse, but still encouraging. The beans are growing fast, though not as fast as the radishes, and the transplanted tomatoes are still head and shoulders above the other veggies.
Though the irrigation system does seem to be working well, I have to admit that it’s still been raining off and on since we planted the garden. These days, though, the forecast is for dry weather—for the next five months. Now we’ll really get to see what a difference drip irrigation can make.
