[...] How to Use Rain Barrels in Your Garden [...]
My Grandmother in Germany was doing this in the 60′s and maybe before that and they used it for watering the garden. They had a wooden barrel and they did this until the very end of their lives.. It was free water and back they believed it was better than piped water. I guess the were on to something back then.
Looking to get one but they can be expressive. Maybe one day but diffently a great idea.
I love my rain barrels. Yes, one isn’t enough. Then we installed a well-pump and now I get rain water right inside my greenhouse. My only complaint, Michigan summers aren’t long enough.
