Need drip irrigation advice

Post  Veganist on 8/3/2017, 5:05 pm

Hi everyone,
I am in the process of installing a drip irrigation system for my six raised beds.I need help in deciding when to set the timer and for how long. I have tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, okra, cucumbers, squash and zucchini. (I wanted to add a picture but don't know how).

Thanks

Ken

Hi, Ken First, here is how to post a photo. Scroll down page 4 to a little over half way for the most recent instructions. http://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t129p75-how-to-post-a-picture-located-on-your-computer

Can you describe your system? I have drip tubing on automatic timers but it is + or - 10 degrees 100*F here most of the summer. Have you used the Search box for irrigation/drip/watering systems?

My beds are set up with drip irrigation, and I run them about 3 minutes per day, first thing in the morning, when the highs are in the 90's or higher. 80's, about every other day. 70's or lower, every three days.

Post  Veganist on 8/4/2017, 3:00 am

Thank you Sanderson and Citizenkate,

I have six 8x4 raised beds. Three on each side. I also have two additional beds that are 8x2.

The contents of the 8x4 are as follows:
Bed 1: Indeterminate tomatoes and cucumbers
Bed 2: (immediately across from bed 1), Cherry tomatoes and zucchini
Bed 3: (behind bed 1), Eggplants, okras, zucchini and cucumber
Bed 4: (behind bed 2), Scotch bonnet pepper, cherry tomatoes & cucumber
Bed 5: (behind bed 3), Zucchini, squash, cantaloupe & sugar baby melon
Bed 6: (behind bed 4), Kentucky pole bean, chili pepper, plum tomatoes, hot banana pepper & cucumber.

The two 8x2 beds have cucumber, beans and culinary herbs.
