Lastly, test the waster system and make sure it’s all working. Adjust the trickled by turning the green part to control the water flow. And that’s it. Your irrigation system is done!
Sticking with the idea of growing only what we’ll eat to avoid food waste I chose high yielding plants like herbs and salad veggies.
In bed one we have leafy greens – baby spinach, bok choy, kale, and iceberg lettuce.
Bed two has two tomato plants – tigrella cherry and an heirloom variety I forgot which type but it will be a nice surprise! We’ve used the Whites Grip & Grow Trellis so the tomatoes have strong support and plenty of space to climb. Because the front of this bed sees more shade I chose two herbs for the front that can tolerate a little less sun, chives and coriander
Bed three is the herb garden. I don’t use much rosemary in cooking but bees love it, there’s also mint, parsley, spring onion, basil, and dill.
