The Couve Stroy: Day 1

We transplanted the couve just next to where the beetroot had been grown. The drip lines were spaced 1 m apart, with drip emitters 0.3 m apart giving about 0.65 L per hour.

We used bare rooted seedlings which we bought from a farmer over the road. Seedlings were transplanted right next to the emitters (3.3 plants per square m).

We watered the seedlings in with 'compost tea' but other than that applied no fertiliser. Here begins the experiment to see just how little water and nutrients we could get away with.
