rain barrels and new plants

Nate has rigged some kind of contraption that forces the water from the rain barrels into the pvc pipes that run to the garden boxes. So instead of us filling buckets and hauling the water, the water will run through the pipes to small sprinklers in the garden boxes to water for us. good concept. I'm waiting to see how well it plays out. 

We haven't had much rain here lately. Quite a bit on tuesday, but that's it for the week. It's not really our rainy season yet. wait another month, then it'll hit.
