Rain Barrel Up and Running

I thought it was about time to install my rain barrel for the season. I was pleased to find out that it only took about 10 minutes to install this year (and most of that time was spent digging through drawers searching for my roll of pipe tape). I also didn't have to worry about taking a hacksaw to my downspout like last year.

I would like to try to hook up some sort of irrigation system to the rain barrel this year. I never give my flower beds enough water (partially because I don't care about them as much as the vegetable beds), but I'd really like them to look a little nicer this year.


  1. P.S. The very first night it rained, the barrel filled up completely!

  2. I'd love to set up a rain barrel, but I'm not sure my landlord would appreciate my hack sawing his downspout.
