Meet your accomplice: the rain barrel.

A rain barrel is, well, a barrel that collects and stores rainwater from your roof that would otherwise be lost. Typically 55 gallons in volume, rain barrels are composed of a drum, hose, PVC couplings and filter grate to keep debris, insects and other nasty things out of your fresh water.

What this means for you? Well, with the rising price of water, an increasing amount of folks are “harvesting” the rain to save money. And considering the wet spring we’ve been having, there’ll be plenty to go around.

Feed your garden the way Mother Nature intended. Be a thief.
