So we started a rain barrel tonight, just in time for some heavy rain. I bought a 35 gallon garbage can, some gutter adjusters, some spickets(as they are called in WV) and a lid....My physicist husband created a rain barrel. I was thinking that it would rain and a few inches would run into the barrel.....Well right now it is over flowing. Who would have thought that we could collect 35 gallons of water off of our roof in 30 minutes. I guess I will be able to water my flowers for a while in case of a drought. Please answer one question for me....Does recycling, composting, and harvesting rain water make us hippies....lol...or are we just going green????
