demonstration plots in Shiprock-NM On June 7th, we set up demonstration plots in Shiprock, NM at one of the Model Farmer's gardens.She raises chilis, squash and tomatoes and uses flood irrigation so it made installation more difficult.
2 different watering techniques We tried a couple of different techniques to make watering easier. To help with the heat, we used the white on black plastic and the red plastic. We also installed EcoCover and the Embossed biodegradeable black plastic. By the time we were finished, it was over 95 degrees!!
