Strawberries on a Pole
This is a great way to grow strawberries and it would work in a shady area out in the desert.

Here's a great resource page: irrigationtutorials.com
They have lots of information covering just about anything and everything you might want to know about irrigation systems. Great resource, especially the section on drip emitters.

wildrose: The water rationing requirements forced on state residents by the idiots in Sacramento during the drought were not very carefully thought out. Many trees died as a result and many trees wound up falling on buildings and causing a lot of damage because their root system deteriorated. When water is rationed provisions should be made for trees and home owners should get a subsistance allowance per tree. Something like 100 cu ft per tree per month would be about right.
