DIY Vegetable Garden Drip Irrigation; made easy

Are you tired of dragging out the hose to water? Not to worry, with our DIY Vegetable Garden Drip Irrigation it's a once tough process made easy! The importance of VEGETABLE garden drip irrigation The importance of drip irrigation for your vegetable garden depends a lot on what type of plants you are growing. Many vegetables do not like overhead watering and it can actually cause more disease, as well as it can also burn the leaves of your plants if watered within the heat of the day. Many times with overhead watering verses drip irrigation, it will also use more water instead of only putting water where it is needed. photography by: Simply Living NC photography by: Simply Living NC Companies nowadays have created drip irrigation to be super user friendly! A once chore of a project has now turned into a DIY Vegetable Garden Drip Irrigation project made easy! Not only is this an easy diy project, it will add up to be a cost savings of water which makes it very worthwhile to install a simple system like this DIY vegetable garden drip irrigation. list of parts needed: 1/2 Inch Universal Hose to Faucet Adapter Universal Barbed Elbow Fitting 1/2" Drip Tubing End Closure 1/2" Barbed Valve, Male x Male 1/2" Blank Distribution Tubing, 100 1/4" Barbed Coupling Fitting 1/4" Tubing, 6" Emitter Spacing Irrigation Support Stakes for 1/4-Inch Drip Tubing All-in-One Drip Irrigation Punch Tool Dripper Emitter 1/4" Tubing Black, 50' Coil how to get started: To get started first find your water supply preferably a faucet near your garden.

Whiteflies on Your Garden Plants & Houseplants; how get rid of pests with my 5 Step Solution

Do you have Whiteflies on Your Garden Plants & Houseplants and wonder how to get rid of these pests?Don't despair, I'm here to help you get rid of these nasty white pests WITH MY 5 STEP SOLUTION! You're taking your daily stroll throughout your beloved houseplants while sipping on your warm beverage as you stroll throughout your gorgeous garden, only to spot a sticky clump of white throughout your plants! Ugh....your heart drops as you realize this clump of white is the dreaded Whiteflies! Whiteflies sucking the life and energy out of your plants before your eyes. Off you go...to start my 5 Step Solution.Before I share this Solution with you...let's talk a bit about these gross little white ones: WHAT ARE WHITEFLIES? Whiteflies are actually not flies at all, they are related to aphids and mealybugs called Hemipterans.They are teeny tiny insects that feed on the sap within your plants. They can be found throughout your outdoor garden, vegetable garden, fruit garden and houseplants. They like to gather in thick clusters typically on the underside of plant leaves or in the nooks and crannies of each plant. The Dreaded Whiteflies Photo by: Erin S. of Simply Living NC WILL WHITEFLIES DAMAGE MY PLANTS? Sadly the answer is YES! These dreaded ones will suck the life out of your plants.What I mean by that is the whiteflies will suck on the juices/sap within your plants which in return will cause them to be stunted, yellow, and the leaves and/or stems may even die. MY FIVE STEP SOLUTION TO GETTING RID OF WHITEFLIES: STEP 1: Spray off the whiteflies with either a high powered stream from your hose or you could even have fun doing it with one of these gadgets called Bug-A-Salt LOL STEP 2: Spray the entire plant with a mixture of Soapy Water. (I prefer Dr. Bronners) I add 1 tbsp. to one gallon of water. Make certain to spray the underneath of all leaves. STEP 3: The following day spray the entire plant with a mixture of soapy water & Neem Oil STEP 4: The next day spray the entire plant with This Garden Spray w/ Spinosad per directions STEP 5: Place These Yellow Sticky Traps Near the Infected Plant (I kid you not, THESE Yellow Ones are my Saving Grace when it comes to Flying Pests on my Plants) In fact I wrote an entire BLOG about getting rid of the dreaded Fungus Gnats After this 5 step process, continue to keep an eye on your infected plant and other plants within the area. If you see the white fluffs again, continue with the 5 step process. You will see they will gradually get better if not immediate. I had an infected Dogwood Tree & Rose and now they are totally gone and they are both thriving after the 5 Step Process! IF INTERESTED, HERE ARE THE PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THE BLOG
