If you've read this blog for a bit, you know we suffered through a drought recently. While we got closer to our average rain amount last year, we're still pretty dry. Our city has many water conservation regulations in place and encourages rain water collection for landscape watering.
I have three rain barrels which I'll set up again once we're safely past freezing temperatures. This year, I'll eventually collect rain water in this large caged container too.
My father-in-law got it from an area farm co-op. It contained Roundup. So, there will be some rinsing of the container with the water only being used where we want to eliminate weeds (bindweed in particular--mostly in the alley) until we are certain all the chemical is out of the container. Then, it will become another place to store rainwater. I'll keep you posted on the set up. I really like that it is on a pallet.
