Rain Barrel

Rain Barrel

When the search began for a rain barrel for the the greenhouse, I knew I wanted something that added character to the garden.  Finding this old copper washing machine tub at a friends antique shop was the perfect piece.  I couldn’t carry it out the door fast enough.  A recycled base of a fire pit made the perfect stand for my rain barrel.

Recycled material, beautiful copper, and a great watering source close at hand.  Makes for the perfect garden addition.

Last year the garden had so little rain, that the rain barrel was empty most of the Summer and Fall.
This year we can’t seem to catch a break from the rain.
The ground is saturated and heavy rains have been making little ponds in the landscape.
The rain barrel is full!
