I accidentally left the drip hose on last night

I laid down a drip hose on my raspberry patch and I must say I’m not impressed. It was about 9 hours of ‘irrigation’. I could see the hose sweating just fine. I scratched the dirt 2~3" from the hose and it was bone-dry.

BTW no water restrictions here, we have an overabundance of it just not falling from the sky.

wow. i guess you got drainage!

I don’t think that was the issue at all. It is good soil so it should have distributed the water through capillary action just fine. It is more that the damn hose sweat was evaporating faster than it could drip.
