    No, watering is not hard, but getting the drip hose routed through 55 cages is the PITB. Being able to move the hose easily and keep the soil aerated is the big advantage with the netting. I'm just trying to make all jobs easier from setup to production and then teardown in the fall. With the netting, I can roll it up and put it in my container barn. With cages, I have to stack them outside the garden and let weeds, briars, and poison oak grow up in them. I just want to work on making the garden grow instead of labor intensive jobs like putting up and taking down cages and then having to work around them.

    I could see the difficulty using drip hose.
    I dont pull my cages usually until the ivy, briars are not growing anyway and stack in a corner of the garden. I think if I mulch good, I shouldnt have to weed or till much, (fingers crossed)

    Started the barbeque. Here comes the rain. For my next trick, I'll wash the car.

    Not even 1/4 inch of rain here. I was doing the darn dance in Tarrant County, since I was working over there today. Oh yeah, we got rain there, but not more than enough to wet a sidewalk here, and sidewalks were dry by the time I went out for the evening chores..

    I'm hoping the rain makes it this far.

    I think I got just over .10", (if I jump hard on the deck to make it move in the gauge!) Looks like it will be "slim pickens"

    I got about 0.05" of rain yesterday and a 20% chance again today.
