What does a ton of tubing look like?

Our drip tape tubing shipment finally arrived! This week 200 farmers will be picking up their rolls of drip tape so that they can connect filters, submains, endcaps, takeoffs, laterals, and lateral caps, and finally get their irrigation going. After customs delays and shipping delays, we were glad to wake up this morning and discover that both the snow and the tubing had arrived.

The snow softens the landscape and muffles sound, and it feels warmer outside. Inside, the greenhouses are filled with fog and the whisper of snow on their plastic skins.
