Soda Canister to Rain Barrell

As we approach mid summer, city made is dreaming of the plump tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, zesty zucchini and the aroma of fresh basil all growing in the garden. Since we are spending so much time outdoors and in a garden, we present garden week.

The rain barrell.

It is a simple yet effective way to conserve water. Our rain barrell came from a carbonated beverage company. An elementary school painted it and it was given away as part of a summer arts fest here in Omaha.

You can retro fit the barrell with hoses and spouts, but you can also simply dip your watering can in to water your garden or plants
