We are going to install some laser drilled soaker type irrigation to do the spinach and the lettuce. This is the fitting that we are going to be using. It is actually a barb, has barb on both ends and it has a hole drilled through the middle of it. What it's going to do is we are going to stick it in the main line and it is going to supply this laser drill soaker hose which has a hole drilled by laser every 12 inches and it squirts water actually from two directions out of it when you put the pressure to it. It is designed to water larger areas that don't need precision watering. Since we've got our lettuce and our spinach in groups, this would be the way that it is most likely to water because it would take a lot of button drippers to do it. This one here provides a little more water for a minute. Therefore on a broadcast situation, this is a better thing.
