Water

Trying to figure out a way to water my crop fields while still offering them protection with trenches around them for the occasional drifter, rabblt, wolf falling in.

I dug down two blocks in the middle of my field and got a bucket of water but can't seem to dump the water into the hole, is this not possible?

 

What's the best way of watering a small field (let's say it's 4 x 20)

Thanks

Sprint+right click places a source block.  Sprint defaults to the cntrl key, iirc.   It's most efficient to make fields in 7x7 squares, with a water block in the center, since water's range for hydrating fields is 3.   Many people like to put a trap door above the water, so as not to fall in.  It helps a lot of keep fields away from buildings, and definitely not under overhangs, so that they get watered by rain.

How I fill water into a hole? My climate is - rain very often, but in my second summer I have now a second dry-periode - so I will fill water holes. Giving water with a can - thats bad. My field is very big. I have a bucket, but can't fill, I place my bucket with water in the hole, but not only water. Like in real life, in 1386 I did got nearly every day raining in the summer, but 1387 is a very dry summer. So I need irrigation.

thats not working, chatwindow is popping up, I changed for this reason some other shortcuts with CTRL.  Filling Barrel with water no problem, just RMB.

Edit: Ah okay, its fine
I changed my Key for running/sprinting - Tab key much better for my leftt hand.
