Everyone’s talking about this weird weather we’re having, I can’t get over how warm it is and have to wonder what this means for the upcoming summer’s growing season. With that thought in mind and, taking advantage of our beautiful weather this weekend Larry installed our first water barrel. I bought it end of last summer and was able to purchase it at a really good price
It sure beats my system of buckets under down spouts when it rains….who am I kidding, I’ll still do that for other areas
It took a quick trip to the hardware store for a few gutter connector pieces, a little over an hours work and it was done. One step closer to sustainable living!
I’ll use it for the herb bed and pots on the patio. It’s hard to believe the county we live in wants to stop the use of these! They think it will create “dry areas”…. I think it has more to do with lost revenue as your sewer bill is based on your water usage.
Thankfully we are still on septic system….for now anyway. They were scheduled to run sewer lines down our road 2 years ago so I’m not holding my breath for that to happen, They can take all the time they need
My next task is to get the patio cleaned up, it’s still cluttered up with the remnants of construction
Have a great day
