How to water a large vegetable garden?

Probably the wrong time of year to be posting this but I'm a perpetual planner so I'm trying to figure this out for next year.

We just had our fence put in at our new house, including a section around what will be my vegetable garden.

The area is 40ft x 20ft.

I'm just trying to figure out what the best way to water our garden will be. Ideally, if I could install a permanent irrigation system in it, that'd be great. But it obviously wouldn't work when we have to till up the ground each year.

I just think it would take *forever* to bring out the house and move around the garden sprinkler each time.

Also, my neighber will probably be watering for us occasionally when we're on extended vacations at the cottage, so I don't want it to be too much work for her too.

Any suggestions?

My previous vegetable gardens were always much smaller, so watering by hand with the hose wasn't a big deal.
