Vegetable Garden Irrigation - Video


Summary: As any experienced gardener can tell you, one of the trickier parts to having a home vegetable garden is irrigation. Here are a few different options for vegetable garden irrigation.

The simplest way to irrigate your garden is to use a hose. Just come out here every day, and just spray down your plants. But, if you don't have a lot of time to dedicate to your garden, this might not be the most practical option.
