A quick warning for those of you who's garden has a slope. PVC drip systems don't deal well with big changes in slope in a garden. Slopes cause uneven water pressure in the pipes and you will have some areas getting too much water and others not enough. So if you garden is on a hill side or drops more than 2 or 3 inches over 50 feet you may want to consider a different watering option.

Hi guys, I'm Rick Stone and I’m a gardening fanatic! Over the last 25 years, I've grown a large garden at my home and it seems like every year that garden gets a little larger. Most years we grow between 800 to 1100 pounds of fresh veggies for our table and tons of great flowers to make our yard look awesome.
I grow all of my own seedlings and we have learned how to extend our garden harvest to 365 days a year. Even in our zone 5b garden! Growing in cold frames and hoop houses is the key.
I'm a graduate of the Utah State University Master Gardener program and have been teaching classes for many years on gardening basics and year-round gardening. For the last 7 years, I have been teaching courses online to nearly 10000 students. Come join me and we will learn everything you need to know to have a successful garden.
