With summer fast approaching, I have been looking at alternatives to watering from the outdoor faucet. A rain barrel is a great idea but still sort of mysterious in that I don’t fully comprehend how it will fit with my soaker hoses etc. I love this post.
Conservative gardening and remember to “bee” positive
Our new fence created a little nook that quickly became a potting area complete with …. TA DAH!…. A rain barrel.
We have wanted a rain barrel for a long time and this is the perfect one for this space. It isn’t even installed yet and already I am thinking I probably need another one. Please don’t mention that to Mr. G. At least until the temperature leaves the 90s.
It is going to be so wonderful to have 50 gallons of rain water!
Do you have a rain barrel?
