    Hi Ashleigh, we are in the mountains east of Albuquerque, and we live on rainwater. As in totally, no other water inputs. In the high desert! We have made, so far, 7 sub-irrigated planters. They are essentially 3′ × 8′ each, Talk about water-wise gardening. The only water they use is the water the plants use. They have been incredibly successful. We grow, in organic potting mix, a lot more than we have ever been able to grow in our clay soil! Just thinking about using your minute soil plus in a new SIP this summer. We are going to shade it with solexx, which blocks 20% of the sun, to see if we can have some success with greeens outdoors in the summer. Without shade, they just bolt.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I have two raised beds for vegetables (another set aside for flowering plants/bulbs). I use the drip system and an irrigation timer (one of three zones for different plantings in my yard). One main pipe with long, flexible 1/4" lines spaced along it, with emitters to set around the roots of plants.
