A homemade root cellar.  Dig a hole in the ground, set a trashcan with lid on inside, add your root veggies, put a bale of straw over top.  You can also store grains inside a old deep freeze (unplugged) or some root veggies, in a out building.  We fed our sheep and goats that way one Winter in Wisconsin.

The best way to water your garden is to set up a drip irrigation system with an automatic timer. But what if you do not have that option?. If so, a great option is to bury a milk jug with holes drilled in it next to your plants. To water all you have to do is stick the hose in the top of the jug and fill up the milk jug and you are done! It also makes it easy to fertilize, add a scoup of fertilizer into the jug and add water and you are done!

Growing avocados. I remember this step from childhood, but that's as far as we went. I'll try again.

Grow your own avocado plant DIY tutorial (i've done this several times--absolutely works; have one avacado plant about 4 feet tall & about 3 feet wide)

Bucket irrigation system. Could be hung on an old clothesline post. The article mentions filling the buckets with water, but I would use it as a rainwater collection system. Close the valve on rainy days then open it when the garden needs water.

Chapin Bucket irrigation kit- used by missionaries in world countries and costs about 7 dollars to irrigate two 50 rows. Its effective, cheap and simple. Fill the buckets times daily and thats it.

Great DIY Idea.  I like this better than the drip systems you can piece together simply because it is easier to modify and replace the  soaker and regular hose segments and they aren't rigid.

Garden Row Snip-n-Drip Soaker System lets you create a convenient watering system for your vegetable garden. No special tools required — just use scissors to cut the hoses to the sizes you need. Snap the fittings in place and you’re ready to water.
