Urban Farming Tips from this Episode.
- Curtis hand waters new areas when he plants seeds when it is hot if those areas are on drip irrigation. The drip irrigation can’t keep the soil most enough to get the plants established.
- Schedule your days out when it starts to get hot. Do the hard stuff early in the day.
- Crop planning. Start with how much you want to sell and work backwards from there to figure out how much you have to have planted.
- It may be better to error on the side of just barely not having enough production than have too much.
