Rain Barrels Drained

Today in the garden...
...finished emptying the rain barrels.  After distributing all the water to plants in the garden, I turn the barrels upside down to finish draining.  They will sit on their platforms upside down through winter to keep ice from cracking the barrels.

  1. Love the fall foliage pic on the side bar. Autumn sure is the prettiest time of year!

  2. Good evening Miss Gardener. I love the fact that you're in your gardens at least once every day. Love the rain barrels. Bill has three himself and wants to tier them somehow. I did get the front garden cleaned out a few days ago and it seems so good. Weeded another area in the back today and put in a couple of wild flowers that I dug up. Have a wonderful week.

  3. I'm waiting to drain ours. It's been so warm this fall that I'm wondering if I'll have to drain them at all....

  4. You get me excited about winter...even though it won't be as exciting as yours will be:) I think this is going to be a big snow year for everyone.

  5. I have been doing some watering from my two, and need to be finishing them up so we can turn them over, too. It's going to be getting colder in the next few days. As for me, I'm ready for spring to get here.

  6. It has been raining like crazy here in the Pacific Northwest. I love it but I'm noticing that as I age I like to have the light so I can see! I thought about rain barrels but I just couldn't get them together this year as a project since I am cleaning so much up. It's hard for me to imagine living where the cold can crack things. Glad you're ahead of the game!

  8. I got my rain barrel drained too. It was a shame since they just got filled back up but the water was directed into the water cistern so nothing lost.

  9. My rain barrels go dry in our summers (PNW) but a few rains in October and they are over flowing again. I am thinking I need to put in more so that I don't run out in the summers when we receive no rains.
