We now have three AWESOME rain barrels in the garden! I'll post pix soon! Two hold 50 gallons and one holds 156 gallons! They fill up so quickly because the rain just pours in off the roof. One of the most frustrating parts of gardening here is never knowing if we are going to have a dry summer or not. Keeping my garden alive and looking great requires a lot of water, which causes huge water bills every summer. I've even started adding my cooking water (unsalted/seasoned) to the rain barrels. If the water is good enough for a bag of pasta, it's good enough for my plants! Just hold the salt! Next on the menu... laying new soaker hoses and marking them so I don't lose the end!
