Making a Rain Barrel.

z and I went to a rain barrel workshop that was offered by the Virginia Cooperative Extension. There was a brief overview about why rain barrels are useful, environmentally friendly, and cost-saving. We also got to see a demonstration of how to put the rain barrel together before they let us make one ourselves.


Our rain barrel used to have pickles inside!


I literally had to climb in to help attach adhesive and a washer to the inside part of the spigot!


I’d say I did a good job…


z hard at work!


We’re proud of our rain barrel!


We are excited to get Gherkin (yes, we named our rain barrel) painted and in to our yard to save money and water our plants!
