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…

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!
