Thanks. I current;y have 4-5K sq ft of garden space enclosed by an
electric fence, plus various raised bed planters outside of that.
Rotate the crops around each season.
I presume you popped around some other dirs and saw the large "totes"
(275 gallon cubes)? Those are for a rainwater collection project. I
still need to acquire a bladder tank, a suitable shallow well pump and
a solenoid-driven 3 way valve (to switch irrigation between the
rainwater and the well). My irrigation controller has a pump output
(the ability to trigger a relay to activate a pump) as well, though I
want the pump to be automatic (just pressurizing a standard bladder
tank like the household well supply does), so pressure would be
consistent and power use lower.
I have nine of those totes, which in total are just about 2500 gallons
of water storage. Just 1.5" of vertical rainfall off the top of my
barn would fill them to capacity.
