In general, a furrow is a ditch. After you prepare your garden bed by incorporating organic matter to help enrich the soil, you dig a shallow ditch and pile the soil up beside the ditch. You plant on the raised up soil and you water your garden by flooding the ditches with water. Most gardens have a series of parallel furrows, all running in the same direction, either up and down or across the garden plot. Hope this clarifies things for you!
