My grandfather put a 50 GPM sump pump in a pond that was 200 yards from the garden and pumped water through some black plastic hose to the garden. Dig a hole about 3 foot diameter and pump all the water in the hole. Then make small ditches from the hole to all your rows to water all your plants. Put the ON/OFF switch at the garden. Turn on the pump and watch the hole fill with water, and water your garden then turn it off.

Well the good deal came from my future father-in-law, so I knew it was in good condition. He'd only used it a few times. After trying it out, it works perfectly for my purposes. I have the pump sitting in a rain barrel with a hose attached to it. All I have to do to water the garden is plug in the pump and spray away! Works perfect, and thanks for all the suggestions. :)
