I’ve put this photo of my chillies here to highlight a water point. Notice how healthy and vigorous my plants are but how dry and lifeless the soil around is? Well firstly, the seemingly barren ground is actually quite fertile. It’s been top dressed with Seamungus, and Gogo Juice was used to invigorate plant growth. It’s just water deprived. Intentionally water deprived. This is my first year of growing under bed cover. I’ve used a degradable black plastic called “Degricover”, with a 30cm spaced drip line underneath on automatic watering to provide water directly and specifically onto my crops. This system is really a trial, but without jumping the gun, so far, things look promising.
