Rainfall 2013/14/15

raindrops

We have installed eleven x one thousand litre tanks under our house, another two behind the carport and another behind the greenhouse. The garden is new, so it does need some water to kick it off, and the potager will always need some water, so we’re gathering what we can from the roof.

 

Here’s how it’s going:
