A windmill driven water pump?
My allotment is approximately 100 feet long and 18 feet wide. It slopes approximately 12 degrees. The water trough is at the bottom (typical!) I do have a water butt at the top and the middle, but in dry weather these become depleted rather quickly. My thought was to build a windmill-driven water pump to take water from the bottom, transport to the top, and then using gravity and slope, irrigate the allotment.
