Drip Irrigation for Hops
« on: May 03, 2012, 01:40:04 PM »
Put up a DIY drip irrigation system for my hops that seems to be working great so far. Best part is it only cost around $20!

Well, I already had the bucket so that would have added another $10.

At first I thought you were collecting maple sap.  How pissed would you be if you forgot to close the spigot?  ;D

nice idea, and +1 for not nailing/screwing into the tree.
