Water is always an issue this time of year. Unfortunately this year there is very little water in the irrigation system. They are shutting off the water this week – Aug 16, 2021 with plans to work on the irrigation system while it is down. There will not even be stock water.
We garden about 3 ac of our 10. Over 100 fruit trees, garden, flower beds, pit greenhouse, our beautiful lilac hedge. Needless to say we go through a bit of water.
Polson Montana has already had low water issues with their well. Our goal is to keep our well working – not to see how low we can take it and then wonder if it will recover.
We will drip the trees, but the rest will have to survive on its own. We are supposed to get some rain next week, so that should help.
