Where there's a water shortage

We started putting together our new drip watering system tonight.  They are very popular here, for everything from patio gardens to city landscaping, to agricultural businesses.  Despite this efficient water delivery approach, Israel's major source of fresh "sweet" water, the Sea of Galilee, continues to see water levels drop, due to dryer summers and winters.  This winter is expected to be particularly dry.  We're having more stormy days here, but still no rain since the one hour downpour two weeks ago. 

Our little patio watering system consists of a separate line of hose off a splitter from the spout on the patio, which we then connected to smaller tubes that go into the pots.

Oh, and what can two weeks in the right climate do with green onion bulbs?  This!
