What do you do about tools? Do you have a tool shed? Hoses? There was a great article on Better Homes and Gardens on how to build a rain barrels out of a plastic garbage can — complete with spigot. I’ll see if I can find it. This is such a fantastic project. Congratulations to all of you — especially Farmer D! Rock on!

We have a tool shed on site, but can always use donations. Wire cutters are in high demand this weekend!

Neat idea about the rain barrel project, send it over!
