here are some boring normal sweet peppers that I am growing in the boring normal part of the garden. Now while I'm here I'll explain my watering arrangements. I apply my irrigation according to the evaporation that occurred the day before. So say I had 10 mm of evaporation yesterday (that's quite a lot but it can get up to 11 here) and i want to apply 100% evaporation replacement I then apply the equivalent of 10mm. In order to know the output of my irrigation system i measure the output with catch cans. So i stick a tub under a couple of drippers in the drip tape and measure how much water comes out over 10 minutes. This is getting quite long so I'll continue in the next post.
