Here is one picture of the treadle pumps which were installed at my site in October.  They are much easier to use than simple watering cans and will, in the future, save time.  Currently we are experimenting with ways to improve water flow.  The green hose that you see in the bottom of the photo is too small to effectively water all of the garden plots quickly enough.  More to come on this project in the year ahead.
