H has been asking about making a rain barrel since she moved home from school last year. She found some plans and was casually looking for a barrel of some sort to use.
On Saturday N and I spent the day with my mother. We had to water the flowers at the cemetery, run some errands and of course we planned to have lunch out. In the course of our travels I spotted a large barrel by the side of the road with a “free” sign. I quickly detoured around the block. Imagine my surprise as I pulled up to it. Not only was it a barrel but it was a homemade rain barrel very similar to the one in the plans! I wrestled it into the truck and brought it home. Sunday The Husband spent a bit of time readying a spot for it and getting it all set up, just in time for the rain! H, who’d been away for the weekend, was so surprised when she got home. I wonder if this will encourage her to water the garden?
