Are you a hosepipe, three hours a day person, or is your whole plot covered in soaker hoses? Be interested to know.
As we are on sandy soil here, with copious amounts of horse manure dug in, in winter, we still battle to get enough water on the crops. Sandy soil does come in handy for dust mulches though! Here's a picture of my current irrigation system, works really well on a windy day.
It covers a wide area, especially when it's windy.
It's just one of those sprinklers that you poke in the ground normally, we just found a long piece of pipe to raise it up, which throws the water further. We leave it on all day in one or two spots and let it get on with it.
