double up

There are certainly times when I do not understand what Homer is telling me. His engineering mind jumps past mine and I am left in the dust, thinking maybe I should clean something. Just for that sense of accomplishment!

Today is one of those days. I don't understand what he is doing or why he is doing it. He is planting in elevated beds, tall enough that a ladder is required! We discussed adding additional hoophouses this year, but it is not in the budget. So he looked around at what we have and used it to install this:

An elevated planting bed!

And then he did this:
a watering system that uses the submersible pump that Carlisle Matt gave us. It also uses the water from the rain barrels and all that rain we have been blessed with for the last few months.

One more photo:
