Thrifty Watering Tips

Thrifty watering is the way to go, especially during Colorado's dry summers. Here are my tips:

  1. Build compact gardening beds, raised or bordered, of rich soil that is enhanced with plenty of compost.

  2. Install a drip watering system in this area. it is an investment, but a well maintained drip system will last for years, and the area of the compact beds is smaller.

  3. Plant densely in the bed. Use companion plating guidelines to help with plant health.

  4. Water in the evening, when the sun will not evaporate the water until the next day.

  5. Rotate crops between beds annually to reduce disease.

Hope this helps.
