Water for the Homestead

Aren't these just the kind of days when you wish you had gone "Xeriscape,"  planted drought resistant choices,  and reduced the number of your potted plants?  And the paper is telling us we need to conserve water as well. 

Here is our experiment with rain barrels. Even with the modest rain, they have worked well in the past few weeks. 

The barrels have supplied our 5, 2 gallon watering cans that are used to water potted plants every few days.  And our additional mulching has helped.

If interested in more "how to"...
check out our video. Give it a minute to load and  "full screen" icon works best for reading the captions.
