    Cut the base out of a large plastic bottle, push screw top end into soil so it's freestanding, regularly or at your discretion fill with water. Easier than hose holding in the heat or having waste water with a sprinkler. Better to fill bottles early morning & cool of the evening. Hope I'm of help.
