Good news for me, the rain barrel we made on Monday has successfully held up AND it is actually FULL! That means I have 55 gallons of water to water my plants and yard with that I don't have to pay for!
Guess what that means......MORE RAIN BARREL CONSTRUCTION TO BE DONE!! I have already discussed it with my husband and he agreed to help construct a few more to put at the down spouts in the back yard!
Honestly, my long term goal would be to have our well redone and use well water to care for our yard but that is expensive so I would much rather spend $30 on a rain barrel for the time being.
Maybe my next rain barrel should be decorative......
