Rain Barrels

Conserving water is a hot topic these days and I was thinking the other day about how many times a day I have to drain my dehumidifier.  I wondered if I could use the water it collects for my garden.  It must be pretty pure water since it is coming from the air I am breathing…or is it?  I am going to research this one and get back to you.

In the meantime, I happened to stumble upon these great Rain Barrels from Gardener’s Supply Co, one of my fave gardening resources.   Rain water that runs off the house or through the gutters has picked up all kinds of dirt along the way, but these nifty barrels help you collect water properly so you can feed sanitary water to your garden.  What a smart invention!
