I'm interested in this thread since I harvest rain water in 4
foot high galvanized tanks which have hose fittings near the bottom. I
also have some rain water in poly drums from which I siphon water, but
none are very high off the ground. Most of my garden is downhill a foot
or two from there. So far, the most efficient method I've found for
distributing the water has been with a canvas soaker hose and some
(definately not all) soaker hoses manufactured from recycled tires. (I
hooked up a bunch last summer and sorted out those that became wet with a
few feet of head pressure from those that remained dry on the outside.) I
also do a lot of dipping from 5 gallon buckets, but that is a lot of
bother even in my moderately sized garden.
Since we have reasonably predictible rains in July and August, I
delay planting my summer crops as late as possible (to avoid the hot dry
winds of May and June), but some things just need too long a season to
wait for rains. I'll be interested in further comments on this subject.
Best Regards, Edna
