It's Not All Dog Emergencies



In addition to tending to sick canines we actually got some other work done over the weekend. One thing I'm particularly proud of was the installation of two rain barrels. It was easier than I thought - but I'm not the handiest guy in town so any project has the potential to take on epic proportions. This was quick and only involved one - wait - it was two - trips to the hardware store.

Now we can capture the rainwater run-off from two of our five downspouts into these handy barrels and use that water on the gardens. Of course it would have to rain first. One of our other downspouts empties into our "rain garden" - but even that's needed some good old-fashioned hose water this spring.
