Make a rain barrel



At Master Gardener class, I made a rain barrel, then after the fact I wondered how I was going to bring it home in my Honda. Thank goodness one of the irrigation specialists was there to help me out with her pick-up. Thanks, Dana!

So, what do you do with a rain barrel? Big Blue is made to put under a gushing gutter downspout. There is screen at the top, an overflow pipe on the side and a handy faucet at the bottom for draining water into a watering can or irrigation device.

It's a good thing to work toward being a good steward of what God has given us so abundantly -- precious water. We need to do what we can to preserve and protect our dwindling water supply.
