|Jake and part of our pile of drip tape at beautiful Luscher Farm|
47th Avenue Farm is now primarily located in Lake Oswego, at Luscher Farm, where these photos were taken.) At the end of last season, we sorted our drip tape into stuff that was worth saving, and stuff that had too many holes to reuse efficiently. Most of the tattered lines will be taken to an agricultural plastic recycling facility, but Laura was kind enough to let me take whatever I needed to get my own farm watered.
So today, one in a series of absurdly warm and sunny January days, my husband Jake and I gathered up the drip tape we needed and stuffed it into the back of our aging but intrepid pickup, Jane. It took us about an hour and a half to roll up and stow enough drip tape to carry me through my first season of farming.
Thanks to a generous farmer and a willing husband, I'm one step closer to getting off (or should I say into) the ground!
