A long time ago, I started a vegetable gardening project with a group of women.  Since there was no water nearby, the way we tended our individual plots was to draw water from an open well, and carry one bucket-full at a time to where the plants were.  Then, using a cup, each precious drop of liquid was meted out onto the soil immediately surrounding the seedlings.  This was a lot of work!  How much easier it would have been, if we had access to a faucet and a length of hose!



"And though she be but little, she is fierce."  That line from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, also adapted in the movie
