We’re not farmers, but that’s not stopping us

Here is a sneak peek at the little “farm” we just acquired. Nothing but hay and weeds, so far (lots of poison ivy). Next to go in: nut trees.

So far, no well (that is not a Christmas song). I wonder if we can generate enough power with an inexpensive solar setup to operate a rain barrel drip irrigation system for a small number of trees. If we find the right iPad app, I’m hoping the automated valves people use on home sprinkler systems can be used to open and close rain barrel valves. Anyone have success with this?
