"Hi, yes, I use drip tape. First of all, the hardware: you have to use 10 PSI regulator, anymore will blow the seals off. I recommend a simple 9 volt timer to e programmed for three minutes three time a day in case a leak happens then it wont make…"

"Jack, I think I know what you mean by expanding and contracting: its full of water when its on making it expand..I plant the seedling on the sides not directly on the tape line, and hold it in place with soil staples. "

Rose in Santa Barbara, CA replied to Jack Ellis's discussion Anybody use drip tape irrigation? in the group Vegetable Gardens
"Hi Jack, I use the thin drip tape, put it on top and I use soil staples, loosely, to keep them in place. I don't see expansion or contraction happening here."

Anybody use drip tape irrigation?

 We are just getting into drip tape. We have always got our water from a small lake, but it dried-up in the drought last year, so we reactivated an old well and installed a drip tape system on four small plots.Do you lay it on top or bury it? Do you buy the heavy gauge expensive tape or the thin throw-away stuff? We bought the stronger 15mm and we have buried a few rows of it 12" deep. But it must have "floated up" or something because the big tiller caught it (whatta mess!!) and the tiller was…See More

"Never used the tape Jack but what Michel posts sounds pretty good.  Been using drip hoses but find I get pretty irregular coverage and end up moving them around.  Maybe the tape is something I should be looking into as well (Thanks,…"

"Patrick - Here's the seed-starting system I have been using for 30 years -a self-watering propagating tray. http://www.gardeners.com/APS-Parts/APS_Cat,11802,default,cp.html This can't be beat! When I bought the first APS units in 1983, the…"

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
