Pumping Rain Water

here is rain water being pumped from a barrel to a squash plant:

still need a few attachments to get all the irrigation going. I plan to have both rain barrels hooked up to the intake of the pump with a two way switch to easily switch between both catchment containers; as well as having a multiple line connector on the other side for a drip system, soaker hoses and a regular garden hose. This is a good start to our irrigation which desperately needs to be set up properly. Especially with all this rain water we have coming down off the roof. Tomorrow some more work on the irrigation systems will be done as well as maybe some homebrewing. Hops in the freezer from last season are taunting me. Supposed to rain by noon so let's see how much I can get done before then.
