Today was another very long day working hard on the house. We poured the cement footers in the holes for the cisterns (you can see us working on one of the holes in my last post). The plan for tomorrow is to get them all built with the cinder blocks and then pour some more cement on Friday. Man I'm already so tired from all this work, I'll probably be about ready to keel over by the end of the week, hehe.
Anyways as I mentioned before (or at least I think I did) Will and I are going to be going to Portland, OR next week to visit some friends, which means we had to figure out a way to keep our greenhouse all watered while we are gone. I would be so devastated if we came back to a dead greenhouse, I mean I grew it all from seeds! Keeping them watered isn't the easiest of tasks when your house doesn't have running water yet, haha. But I can happily report that we came up with a little system that we think is going to work wonderfully!
|We also have a timer system that is not in the picture that we will be using to turn the pump off and on. Haha it kind of looks like a little bit of a disaster doesn't it? But hey if it works right :)|
|We will place all the potted plants on the ground under the misters.|
I can hardly wait till our plants start producing some yummy veggies! How are all your plants doing?
