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!
