Great Job....Nothing quite as rewarding as standing back when it's all done and just watching it produce the Fruits of your labor...I'd like to hear more about the irrigation system also...I use four 55 gallon rain barrels . elevated 3 ft high on blocks with spigots added to the bottom for gravity feed....Got a Shallow well, only 25 ft deep and Must conserve water as much as possible.
