World Water Day

World Water Day

March 22 is World Water Day.  Nearly 25 years ago, the United Nations recommended an international observance of water in effort to raise awareness of our dependence on this critical resource.  Each year this campaign for awareness adopts a different theme.  We here at DripWorks find this year’s theme very appropriate for our own 25th year in the irrigation business because the theme this year is “Water and Jobs.”  The goal this year is to shine a spotlight on the labor rights and practices of workers in all water-related industries worldwide.

Starting your Veggies from Seed

Starting your Veggies from Seed

Starting a vegetable garden from seed is an age old tradition. At Dripworks I am once again getting the display garden ready for planting. With Spring less than a month away, I have the “itch” to roll out the electric heating mat on an upper shelf in our little Solexx greenhouse and plug it in. The mat has a thermostat that controls the temperature to give the seeds in the seed tray a nice constant 68-72 degrees. These seeds will then have a good chance to germinate quickly. Our trays have clear plastic lids to keep the moisture and heat in and can be bought at most nurseries. Using last year’s plastic six-pack seedling container, waxed paper cup, or small yogurt container works well too for seed starting.

Creating a Spring Pollinator Garden

Creating a Spring Pollinator Garden

Pollination is vital to the fertilization, reproduction, and survival of all non-GMO food and flower species. We have talked before in this blog about the plight of the pollinators. Pollination occurs when insects or animals move between flowers of the same species carrying with them the essential powdery pollen granules necessary for fertilization. The result is successful seed and fruit production that will enable your plants to provide tasty, full-bodied fruits and vegetables, year after year.

Vertical Gardens

Vertical Gardens

Want an artistic twist to your garden, patio, or landscape? Wish you could grow more flowers or veggies in the space you already have? Vertical gardening is a way to add creativity, beauty and dramatic appeal while maximizing your space. If you live in an urban area with only a small patio, balcony, or deck, vertical gardening can provide room to grow. If you presently have no garden it’s still possible to grow edibles or raise beautiful flowers in whatever space you have available. Just do a web search for the term “vertical gardens” and you’ll find plenty of ideas to get you started.
