I was using natural channels already, but dug them a bit more connected so now I can put the hose in one place, turn the water on, and it will run to nearly every plant in the garden. Of course, after a heavy rain I will need to come down and make sure the channels stay clear.
I'm holding paper seed packets waiting for Mark to come trade places with me holding her back.

The water from uphill was already running down here - so I brought some extra seeds with to plant sorghum broomcorn and sunflowers down here in what was turning into a river delta. If the sorghum grows well I'll add black eyed peas which will climb them, but will not plant the peas until the sorghum is at least 4 inches tall.
