I'm almost finished building a 72'x30' high tunnel/greenhouse and should be installing the poly skin this Saturday. I'll also be installing a gable-mounted exhaust fan, flourescent lights, and some kind of irrigation system. I will be growing vegetables only and planting everything directly in the ground.
#1 Would you recommend drip irrigation?
#2 Drip tape on the ground or hanging from the frame?
#3 Has anyone used gutters and tanks of some kind to catch and store rainwater and is this cost effective compared to irrigating directly from a well?
#4 If, so, has anyone used solar panels to power your water pump?
Thanks for your help!
