Going Green

May 19th, 2008 at 02:03 pm

Ah the Internet is such a wonderful place [i]sometimes[i] when you're a DIY'er.
Looked up instructions for making a rain barrel and a tumbling compost bin. Then compared prices to those already made. WOW what a difference!
The rain barrel system is a must here in Kentucky due to the drought-like conditions we have from June to late August (like last year. I wanna be ready and be able to water my garden and flowers with 'natural' water versus the stuff that comes out of the tap.
The compost bin will cut down on my waste to the curb and the expense of fertilizers. Al-in-all, a win-win situation for us & our Earth!

    I have been contemplating a water barrel myself as I have a pretty large and growing garden. I use a compost area which is just a four walled area in my back hard filled with grass clippings, veggetable cuttings, fruit cores and other composting stuff. Best of luck and God bless.

    Yes, it does seem that you can find anything on the internet! DH has also talked about a rain barrel. Good luck with your gardening!
