That is almost funny... it is SO flat here! But I have mountains in the not too distant that I can gaze at I suppose I can find out if there is any kind of a slant to this property.
This is what I want to eventually do... We have mosquitoes here because of the irrigation canals that run all over the place... I want to get some muscovy ducks (who eat mosquitoes and their larva) and put a stock tank outside to catch that discharged water for them to swim in. After they have been in it a couple days, I want to release part of that water onto the orchard. It should contain plenty of fertilizer by then too.
Apparently the water system discharges every 3 days, according to the booklet, so I just have to figure out how much water is being discharged.
You have your orchard on a drip system... how often do you run it? Do you have dwarf fruit trees? I was imagining that spacing them that closely you would have to have but maybe not? I think I'm going to see if I can find the book you mentioned.
