  1. How long will the three full rain barrels last you? Or, do they never completely empty?

    They will get empty at some point this summer. It's so hard to judge how long the water will last because I have different water needs all the time. And, this year, I added a lot more vegetables. I added the rain barrel status on my rain gauge reports to sort track that. At some point, we'll have a dry spell and I see approximately how long it takes to go from full to empty.
