This is a great idea and it's practically free. Hurray!
Each and every piece on the list is something I already own! My favorite part is the milk jug IV tubing.
You deserve a medal, but the best I can do is send a thumbs up and some acorns. Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

Thank you for the kind words. These have worked perfectly for my vegetables this year. I connected all of my tubing to a 10 foot section of 2 inch pvc pipe with elbows on each end. I fill the pvc pipe with water once or twice a day and that has been good enough to keep them watered.
