I like to try different ways to save time and work in the garden.I made a rain barrel system and I tried rain gutters upside down with soaker hoses running through them. Worked very well. I put straw in between the rows of gutters to keep the weeds down.

Your rain barrel/watering system looks very effective. Do you drain the system and take the soaker-hoses/inverted gutters in for the winter? I see you are already starting some seedlings in the window for your next garden. : )

Good idea.
Rain collection is on the to do list.
Garden looked very happy with that rain gutter setup.
