irrigation with harvested rain

Y-valve off our 275 gal. toteirrigating the three sisters garden yesterday evening:

drip drip on our squash:
nice pressure even at only 3gpm

beans and corn

scarlet runner beans; which have been known to grow thirty feet up a telephone pole.

should be awesome!:
hopi blue with runner beans
maize and legumes:


irrigating the melons, lettuces, kale, radishes, spinach, arugula on 1/2" drip and 1/4" soaker through this pump (on top of our mint), from our rain cistern/ barrels.

...also watered all three types of sunflowers and quinoa yesterday which are all germinating and looking good after last weeks five day rain-a-thon. (which sadly totaled about an inch in our rain-gauge)

pathway from house to 3sisters:

we'll be at the farmer's market bright and early tomorrow with a few of our last trays of starts which hopefully will overlap the peas, radishes, beets and whatever greens we might harvest in the coming weeks....
