My watering system is simple – a soaker hose in my raised bed and then buckets to catch any water that soak through. Most of the time this is enough to water the few plants in the side yard that need water. It is also a dangerous system. Yesterday , I bent down to grab a bucket – and dented my forehead on a leg. I woke up this morning, and it is still tender. Goose eggs are all the fashion, I hear.
