A neighbour gave me an extra rain barrel she had so Richard swung into action.
He found some old eavestroughing and attached it to the shed roof. The shed is close to the garden, so the rain barrel's water will be easy to use.
I covered it with mesh so that little critters who might be crawling up the sides of the shed, wouldn't fall in and drown. And then it poured rain that night. Cats and dogs!
The next morningI ran out to see what I anticipated to be, my full or half-full barrel. Oops. Guess we'll have to revisit our eavestroughing. Another ongoing summer project.
