Answer: What you describe isn't unusual at all! Many gardeners prepare a vegetable garden by digging trenches (for water) and mounding soil up along the trenches for the plants. When seedlings begin to grow their roots will reach down toward the source of water, effectively anchoring each plant in the mound of soil. To water, simply flood the trenches. The soil will absorb the water, and provide moisture to the roots of the plants. Hope this clarifies things for you!
