All I want for Christmas

I'd rather it didn't look quite like a beer barrel but a rain barrel is the #1 thing on my list this year. How grown up is that?

first thing I thought was - you guys want a keg for christmas??

Ooh I want one too! I'm not totally sure how they work though - i mean how does the water get in that barrel unless it's coming off the chemically-shingles? I need to look into it.

Lauren S said...

Ok, I should revise - when I'm thinking about watering food plants. For others, no big deal.

You bring up a good point Lauren - hmmmm! I was planning on using it off the roof. I'll have to rethink because this would be for the nonexistent garden

You can set up a filtration system within the barrel using things line fine weaved material and charcoal. Look into it online I am sure someone has some plans because I have seen it done. We would be all about pitching in on that for you!!!

Suddenly this silly song could have added meaning for you...

Oh playmate, come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three.
Climb up my apple tree,
Look down my rain barrel
Slide down my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends forever more

Do you have a cellar door? That would be ideal.
