Water Run

Should I create a more efficient water solution at the community garden? or Should I continue to take these short and sunny bike trips? Both? Hmmmm..

FULL BOTTLES

EMPTY BOTTLES

    how do other gardeners water? is there space for rain barrels? downspouts nearby?

      It appears that most are using open topped barrels and that will, probably, be the most straightforward way to go. Downspouts are a bit far to be practical. I can imagine a couple of multi-rainbarrel depots (like they had at MEEP) with tarp roofs to catch rain. Meanwhile, I’m trying to put a lot of organic material back into the soil to help the water holding capacity. The soil, generally, looks burned out with evidence of repeated tilling and use of chemical fertilizers. I may be able to get by with soil building, low demand plants, and bottle waterings during germination and droughty times. I intend to start keeping my eyes peeled for a barrel though. Hoping for a little rain tonight 🙂
