Plastic Laying Machine
The machine shapes a bed with furrows on both sides and lays the plastic down on it. The packing wheels press the plastic down into the furrow. The wheels are angled slightly so the plastic is stretched tight across the bed. The covering disks then throw some soil on the plastic in the furrow, locking it down to the ground. A drip tape is also laid down about 2 inches below the surface under the plastic. Rain and overhead irrigation will diffuse in from the side of the plastic, but using the drip line is more efficient and requires much less water. This version does not have the fertilizer attachment which is available on other models.
The concrete block is there to hold the drip line in place while laying the plastic. The plastic and the drip line are under tension to keep them straight and tight, so if the drip line slips out from under the concrete block you could wind up without drip line under the plastic.
The plastic film costs a bit less than 4 cents a foot and the drip line costs a bit more than 2 cents a foot. It took me about 2 hours to lay 1500 ft of plastic. Most of that time is getting set up for a row, making adjustments, and covering the ends of the plastic.
The plastic laying machine doesn’t do anything to the ends of the plastic so the shovel is there to cover the ends. If you don’t cover the ends, the wind can get under it and rip it all out of the ground.
The rows can be laid down closer than shown here, but I like to have space between my tomatoes. It enables me to get a garden cart between the rows for transporting the picked tomatoes and it allows better air circulation to dry off the plants and reduce fungus problems on the plants.
recycled plastic (PET) bottles #6620
Note how everyone has carefully removed the plastic shrink wrap, removed the plastic screw cap, rinsed the inside, and crushed the bottle to save space. (sarcasm: See photo link below.)
Stores go through the motions, but aren’t really interested in recycling. They and their suppliers want the conveniences of PET bottles over bottles and cans: lighter, one-way (no deposits in Japan), burnable.
First of all, the bin capacity is a mere fraction of the daily sales. The stores want buyers to take the bottles away and discard them in the street, a river, a highway divider, or household trash.
My city (Setagaya) supplies the bins and collects the contents. Other municipalities have other ideas—the most popular being just burning them. My dive trips to Izu involve toilet breaks at various convenience stores in Kanagawa and Shizuoka Prefectures.
And what happens after collection? After these recycling systems were installed with much fanfare, TV and magazines carried shots of mountains of plastic bottles dumped in the backwoods. (They are NOT biodegradable.) There just isn’t that much of a market for recycled PET. Besides, as this photo shows. The "recycled" bottles aren’t ready for processing.
• ??????(petto botoru) = "plastic bottle"
↑ PET = polyethylene terephthalate, a term unknown to 99% of the North American public. We call them plastic bottles.
