Last year it seemed almost every rain storm that came this way would disappear just before it arrived or it would pass to the north or the south. The crops suffered greatly.
So this year I am setting up a way to easily water the field.
I am using a solar powered submersible pump and will be connecting it to soaker hoses that I can put along the field rows.
I may pump water from the spring to a storage tank and then gravity feed it. Or collect rainwater in the tank and pump it to the fields. I will see what works the best.
