While converting the rest of my garden areas to SFG, I decided to try potato towers at the end of the pathways that would be wasted space. As I was roughing in the plumbing for the irrigation system, the back half of my pea brain was thinking about the water requirements on an elevated potato tower. :roll: The base of my towers will be 10"deep and each addition will be 6" deep.

My solution was a plumber’s nightmare. :lol: The soaker hose will be just below the surface where I plant the spuds. As I add height to the tower, I can move the soaker hose just below the new surface and repeat for each height increase. 8) All I need to do now is learn to play the flute so the hose will rise to the new height it self. :wink:

That's pretty clever. I'll look forward to seeing the results next year.

Oh, and I'd like to see a picture of you out there playing a flute. :D
