Watering Trees Around the Farm

Here in the Northeast, we're expecting thunderstorms tomorrow, but warm, humid, and dry conditions the rest of the week.

Because of this typical summer weather, we're doing a lot of watering around the farm to keep the many gardens, trees, shrubs, and plants well-irrigated. We use a number of sprinklers and hoses, but we also use a large caged 275-gallon water tank for young trees that would otherwise get stressed without a deep-root soak. The tank is loaded onto a truck and hooked up to a pump and battery that help provide enough force to move the water through the hose and hand-held wand.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
