Are you going to try to hook up that root feeder to your drip tape system? If you do, please share how you did it.
Thanks

I think the plastic mulch works so well because it helps the roots evenly retain the moisture. With the way the drip tape wicks water into the soil it is darn near impossible to over water also. Not to mention i save a ton of money on the water bill since the water does not evaporate as soon as it hits the soil. The only issue i am having with the system so far is the inability to inject organic fertilizer into the drip tape. Organics just does not disolve the way synthetics do. I think i finally found a way around this issue though. Here it is https://www.amazon.com/Ross-Root-Fee.../dp/B00002NC84

No im going straight to the roots. I did buy a siphon injector that i plumbed into my drip tape system but using organic liquid fertilizer clogged the drip emitters.

Did you have a 200 mesh screen filter after your injector?
BTW, what's up brother? Good to see you back at it in 2017! Life is good.

Whats happening man? Good to see you posting around here again. No i did not but i think the root soaker will work out for me. I did not fertilize at all last year and had a banner crop by mistake:))

Even the bees think the variegation is beautiful, even without flowers.

I always liked the way pepper seedlings look so uniform.

HTG, I love the photo of your backyard!

Although I don't think you have yet maximised your tomato growing space. I can still see some grass!

Hope it is another good season at your place

Thanks! I tried to dig up the yard but my wife likes the grass for the kids. I guess she is right:))

Two in one leaf on a Oda Pepper seedling.

That is too funny, that pic of your seedlings coming with your family on vacation! :lol:
I can't trust anyone else with my seedlings either, so I go away only after I plant them safe and sound, and can get a reliable person to water them exactly as I instructed.
