This is the second year we're using this system of capturing run-off water and funneling it through our greenhouse. If you have already have a hoop, you know the incredible amount of runoff created by even an 1" of rain. Outside on the right side, we dug a channel and intermittent opening along the wall. We then dug a corresponding channel inside, slopping it so water runs to the center isle and into the keyholes. At the far end, to the left of the opening/door is a board that stops water from escaping. The board is slipped out for the water to escape and move to an outside garden. Super simple and surprisingly effective.

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
