Does the open ditch irrigation seem to work? That is effectively what I am doing now. The plants seem to be doing okay, but I have to make a few modifications to my furrows to make it more efficient. I didn't set the garden up with this method in mind, but at least everything is in rows so I can deal with it.
Yes. Seemed to work fine. I didn't have "hills" per say to plant in. Just more depression between rows of plants than flat ground.

Took a certain amount of hand shoveling to keep things going, and going the way I wanted it to. But worth it.

If I were to do it over again, I would plow hills close together, too close to cultivate with my tractor maybe, but higher and better suited to free running water.

I watered early in the am.

Good luck

f42,

Which sprinkler head and nozzle did you get? I think I need to put a pressure gauge on my system because I have no idea how much pressure it actually puts out. It did work okay this past summer with the trench irrigation setup, but a sprinkler of some sort would make my life easier.
