More water? Yes please!

As many of you may have noticed, we are quickly going through the garden's winter supply of water. We are happy to say that we have set up 3 more rain barrels to catch the rain water coming off the building. A huge thank you to Hunter Herrman for helping me set them up!

Why use rain barrels instead of just attaching a hose to the city's water system?

1. During the peak summer months a rain barrel can collect about 1,300 gallons of water, depending on where you live

2. Rain barrels help reduce erosion, storm water flow, pollution and flooding.

3. A rain barrel will help reduce the demand on the local water supply.

4. Rain water is naturally softer, oxygenated and more acidic than tap water. It doesn't have any chlorine, calcium or lime.

And best of all...It's free!

Now that everything is set up, we just need it to rain! Anyone know how to do the rain dance?
