All right we are going to install an extension hose which will take the water from the emitter which regulates the amount of water that comes through and out and we are going to put an extension hose on it so that it will reach over to the exact location that we want the water to end up. So on the smooth part of the button that is sticking up, I'll put the hose on and then I'll just extend this hose out here. Then I am going to go a little bit past towards the outside because that is where heat is going to accumulate in this raised bed if there is going to be any. I am going to put the water a little bit closer to that outside bed. I have a stake here that will snap around that hose, like that and hold it so that when I get out here and put it down, it is going to stay put. I stick it into the ground like so and now my hose is going to stay where I put it, I put my water in the exact location that it needs to be to water those two strawberry plants right next to each other and keep them watered as individuals without having to water the whole bed.
