Thanks for posting the pictures. I was thinking of something similar for next year - I will probably pump water out of a pond to fill the tank, but I haven't looked at pumps or filters yet (I have the tank). I was thinking about adding a smaller size line to encircle the tree, but not sure if that would work. My goal would be to provide about 3 gals per tree per week for two weeks, for about 40 trees. Normally, I am onsite every two weeks during the summer.
i'm ripping off this idea. guaranteed. i love it. 3 of my 4 apple trees i planted last year are now dead because i can't get up there to water them. bought the 275 gallon tanks last year. i have everything i need.
funny you should ask. i just posted something about why i haven't been on here. it's been an insane summer. it's laughable. every time i think i'm going to make it up north for a weekend something happens. there's been about 4 or 5 times where i thought i was going to spend the weekend up north and then friday afternoon something happens. bags packed and everything. I've been staying off here because it's depresses me :)
i haven't done anything with food plots outside of dropping a bunch of money with you. i think the beans will have to wait until next year, i should still have decent germination right? I was thinking to just put it on a little thicker next spring.
outside of my fall food plots my next project will be your watering system here. i just ordered some garden hose adapters for the 275 gallon totes off ebay.
it's all good. the family is having a blast this summer. at some point i'll get back out there.
good tip on the hose. i wouldn't have thought of that. i was just going to put the totes by the trees and use a 5 gallon pail to water the trees. this is the way to go for sure. it's so typical for a farmer to come up with something like this.
