On to the last trials with my rain barrel. All that I need right now is another storm to come in and refill the barrel now. I really hated dumping most of the water but damn it’s heavy once filled. That’s way too much weight for lil’ ol’ me to even try to pick up by my onesy. It will refill soon enough.
It’s fascinating learning just how much water that I could save and use again for the garden and the plants. And I’m putting some thought into hooking three all together next Spring. Two more barrels with spigots on the bottom of the, two short hoses, a “Y” connector and a long garden hose and I think I can use mostly rain water to water the garden starting next year. That would really cut down on my water bill.
