AT the Ramgo R&D Farm in Brgy. Antipolo, Bongabon, Nueva Ecija, we saw this curious way of watering two small plots of vegetables. It could be a ready conversation piece if you adopt it in your own home garden. We coined this term “watering your veggies the intravenous way.” That’s because the first thing to come to our mind is the way patients are fed with liquid nutrients through their veins.
Well, as you can see in the picture, two-gallon-size plastic containers are installed about five feet above the ground and filled with water for irrigating the vegetables drop by drop. The tubes are directed to the root zone of the plants so that little by little, moisture is brought to the base of the vegetables.
This one could make kids get interested in gardening. Who knows?
