Now I Need Rain

I am now the proud owner of a rain barrel. It is made from a repurposed olive barrel. I picked it up yesterday from ACE and installed it today. I had trouble installing the flexible downspout I bought yesterday, and the barrel is rather precariously perched on some blocks on my very uneven patio bricks.

Now I just need some rain to try it out. It is supposed to storm tonight, lucky me!


  1. Yea! Too bad I didn't get around to hooking up the overflow before we got enough rain to fill the barrel. But it is set up now. The barrel is working pretty well for filling watering cans in an area where water was not readily accessible.
