[quote:Lancifer:MV8zNzQ1NTE3XzY3Mzc4OTQ5XzU3NEFGRkEy] [quote:Fluffy Pancakes:MV8zNzQ1NTE3XzY3MzQ0MDAwXzQ4NUQ3Q0U1] As long as I planted Kiwi on the garden side of the moat, that should work out well. This bindweed is pretty insane, and the garden spot is the only pretty level and good sun place we have. I was planning on using shade cloth over part of the moat. I'll watch your video later tonight. Really good info. Hope everyone has great gardens this year! [/quote] I got distracted...hardy kiwi is a semi-shade plant anyhow, it will grow in full light of course but the leaves turn a wondrous mottled white, pink and light green...'obviously' not something you would want as a feature plant. If you get the Arctic Beauty (look for online nurseries not 'one off sites') it is absolutely gorgeous. And they love (unlike some other kiwi's) high nitrogen.... [/quote]
Might be winter but have begun planning my garden for this spring and will be using the ancient concept of Ollas for irrigation to save water effort and time.
We have a raised bed garden, purchased three commercial Ollas for melons, okra and cucumbers, and found a website to make Ollas as a DIY project for other boxes.
For those who live in areas where the ground freezes the Ollas will need to be removed from the soil each fall otherwise they will break.
