      @prairiepatch …I know what you’re talking about with the kinked hose. Comes out pretty well in the beginning then it kinks…..Donald

      That’s a great idea with the tank. Have you considered getting an additional tank so you don’t have to take so much time cleaning out that one?

      By the way, who won the contest for the okra seeds?

      @wsarris424 …That’s what I said in the video, if you can get 2 tanks. After posting the video to YouTube the first one to guess “cetarro” got at 113……Donald

      Last yr I started taking milk and juice jugs. Poked a hole in the bottom, cut a chunk out of the top tied them to my pepper stakes. It made it easier to use the hose to fill the jugs and not water the weeds. I may invest in a power sprayer like your this season. Filling those 1 & 2 gallon pump sprayers 4 or 5 times is getting old, cuts into my couch time.

      @blackpowderbill …That 26 gal. tank goes a long way when putting water out just where you need it. Pays for itself in no time and you can use it for spraying also……Donald

      Hi Donald, Do you ever check the water ph? We have well water and it 6.2 but I really dont know if thats bad for veggies or not. Its really hard though, leaves spots on everything. Cant wait to see your garden this year!

    11. webcajun Says:

      @minifarmgirl11 …No I never have checked the PH of the water. I’ve never done a soil test either…..Donald

      @webcajun I know this isn’t about this video but do you usually plant by the signs? Thank you

    13. webcajun Says:

      @ShawnKirkpatrick1994 …With all the rain we get in winter and spring I have to plant when I can, not by the signs…..Donald

      Hi Don, not a watering question but is the garden affected by deer/rabbits? Just curious if you do anything to deter them. Thanks!

    23. webcajun Says:

      @Darrenc68 …No deer but I do have at least one rabbit. Try throwing a few moth balls out there and it may keep em out…..Donald
