This post is a week late but better late than never, right? Two weeks ago, our big project of the week was installing an irrigation system in one of our newest fields where we have planted tomatoes, green beans, sugar-snap peas, spinach, carrots and radishes. I have never installed an irrigation system before and it was quite the process and not necessarily a fun one at that. Pictured on the left is a general step-by-step process of how we put together the hose structure.
This hasn't been my favorite task so far at the internship but I enjoyed learning how to do it because water is one of the most important things that plants need. I'll post a picture of the final product below.
October is right around the corner which means that we will be starting the construction of the strawberry "wall" soon which is my big project for the whole semester! I'm can't wait to help Corey plan and actually make the structure.
