Throwback Thursday

 by Texas Homesteader~ 

Well, summer is upon us y’all. Temps are heating up and gardens are growing. Whether you’re growing a veggie garden or landscaping areas, those plants need to be watered from time to time during the hot summer months.

But it’s never made sense to me that such a precious resource as water is treated to make it safe for drinking and then piped from miles away for me to just spill out of a water hose & throw on the ground. So I  use only rainwater for outside watering & irrigation. But there can be long spells without rain in the summer months. I needed catchment systems to capture and hold rainwater until I need it.

To celebrate Throwback Thursday I thought I’d share with you the three simple rainwater catchment systems we use here on the Homestead. They’re inexpensive and easy to use. Come see!

    I’d like to snail-mail a condolence card to you and your family. I am very sorry for your loss. I live in Antioch, IL and, as a greyhound rescue volunteer, I create cards for greyhound adopters whose greys pass. I enjoy your newsletters, etc. and I have felt your sorrow many times. But, that being said, I cannot see myself without my greys. Time and Faith will ease the pain and you will always have wonderful memories.May I send you a card?

      What a sweet sentiment Yvonna. A card is not necessary, your caring heart and comfort has done more than a card ever could – THANK YOU! ~TxH~
