Mittleider Gardening at the Ten Mile Farm
A quick update of our Mittleider Gardening experience.
Yesterday I installed and tested the water system. I will admit that it was more work than I thought it would be to make, but now that it is done it should last many years. It is basically 90 feet of PVC with three holes drilled every 4 inches. That’s 810 holes. I had to change the battery on the drill about every 220 holes and I broke 4 drill bits, but other than that it was a piece of cake.
Today I transplanted Tomato, Bell Pepper, Yellow Squash, Cucumber, and Zucchini plants. I also planted the seeds for the pole beans. I did all of this during a nice rain shower this morning, so everything was watered in by nature.
I really should have done all of this two weeks ago, but time has a way of getting away from me sometimes. Next year I will be ready to plant on time since all of the infrastructure is built. It will be fun to document the growth and harvesting of these plants in the coming weeks.
