2010, In the pipeline

In the pipeline

Our new vegetable garden is now ready for planting. It’s so large that the far end is over 100 yards from the nearest source of water, and more than six feet higher. We need to find a reliable and sustainable solution for irrigating the entire plot which doesn’t involve carrying watering cans up and down the slope. An underground brick built tank, that used to be part of the Orchard House, becomes key. If we could redirect the rain water from the back sheds into the tank, then dig a trench up the length of the main pathway, lay a new pipeline, add a few stand pipes and taps, submerge an electric pump into the tank and then cover it all up again,,, that should do the trick.
