Vegetable gardening irrigation is all about watering cans or is it.

For vegetable garden irrigation many backyard home gardens just use a watering can. I must admit a watering can does come in handy, but I only use one for the out of the way corners and the odd

plant here and there. I prefer trickle or drip irrigation because once you have rolled out the pipes you can forget about for the season or you can forget about it for ever depending on your gardening activities. 

For vegetable gardening you need some form of irrigation even if you still use your original lawn sprinklers. 

They are good, they watered your lawn for years, now they can water your garden. It doesn’t matter what vegetable garden irrigation system you use, as long as you have one. Anything is better than carrying a watering can around, and a good gardening irrigation system will save a lot of time. When you start your vegetable garden just roll out two trickle irrigation pipes down each one meter or yard wide vegetable garden bed about 1 foot or 30 centimeters apart and forget about watering. Occasionally you might have to adjust the water flow by turning the nozzles a bit or move the pipe a little and that will be about it. 

With trickle or drip irrigation the roots of the vegetable plants are encouraged to grow deeper as the water under a drip irrigation seeps a long way down into your soil. 

And depending whether your vegetable plants like water or not you can plant them at different intervals away from the drip irrigation nozzle. So for a vegetable garden irrigation system drip or trickle irrigation is the way to go.
