Every effort is made to use rainwater for watering. There are four 45 gallon drums for collection, two on each side of the house. The water is transported to the garden area by wheelbarrow. This is feasible since less than 2000 square feet is under cultivation. Each plant gets one measured pail of water to it roots, when deemed necessary. This is possible accurately using the hand pail. Watering is spread throughout the week so the task is not onerous. Watered today were 24 tomato, cucumbers, and Brussels spouts. Experience indicates that this saturation root watering is very effective and places water where required on the root area.
