|It actually rained and actually worked!|
As part of my summer of activities, yesterday morning, I (with only a small assist from my wife) finally installed our rain barrel!
|If you think this is unkempt you should have seen it before.|
|Long neglected, this area cleans up nicely.|
|Ready for action!|
As evidenced by the picture at the top of this post, despite our summer drought, we were fortunate to actually have a downpour a few hours after we completed the installation. The rain actually filled the barrel to capacity (with quite a bit using the overflow PVC piping to the left).
Next up, maybe I'll eventually achieve my dream of installing a chicken coop!
