Water and a little more ?

Water and a  little more ? Empty Water and a little more ?

Post  Gord on 1/17/2020, 2:11 pm

Converting 1" of water for a given space into gallons is easy.

1:  Measure a growing bed. For example.4'x4' = [ 16 ' ]

You want to cover that bed with 1" [1/12 foot ] of water.

 2:Calculation 4'x4'=  16 Square feet     16 Divided by 12 =1.33 cubic feet of water .

 There are 7.5 gallons in 1 cubic foot ; therefore, 1.33 x 7.5 =9.9999999998

 OR 10 gallons.
 3:  Give 10 gallons per week on average for every 4'x4' Square.

Thank you! Gord    Bye Bye.

I think I just keep watering until it has enough Smile

You can also combine all the factors into one expression:

Width x Length x inches x 0.623 = number of gallons.

where width and length are in feet and inches is the number of inches you want to cover your garden with.

Or after checking the rain gauge and if no rain the last week about 0.60 gallons per square. Got it.
