    Looking for ways to conserve water in your home landscape, or a more efficient way to water your vegetable garden? Then you will not want to miss the Ellis County Master Gardeners’ Pop-Up Horticulture event scheduled for Saturday, July 15 at Waxahachie Farmers Market. The topic will be “Irrigation Efficiency In The Home Landscape”.

    Just look for the white tent and you will find Master Gardener irrigation specialists Jim Derstler and Allan Paxton ready to cover such things as drip vs. spray nozzle irrigation, and new technology in equipment. They will demonstrate how to test your sprinkler system to determine water distribution efficiency, advise you on how to conduct routine system checks, repair leaks and replace worn and defective nozzles. Jim and Allan will also be glad to answer questions that market visitors may have about the design, operation and maintenance of home landscape watering systems.

    So, mark your calendars for Saturday, July 15 from 8 AM – 1 PM at the Waxahachie Farmers Market. And don’t forget to bring your irrigation questions for Jim and Allan. Just look for the Master Gardeners’ tent on the north side of the market grounds.
