Water Collection

We now have 1200 gallons of water storage available!! Here are two of the three tanks (one in the background):

We get lots of rain during the fall, spring, and winter, but precious little during most summers. Since we are putting in a lot of food plants (greenhouse, orchard including soft fruits, veggies, grain crops, root crops), and we live on a well, we figured we needed to put in some water storage. We still recycle our laundry water (you'd be surprised at how much water goes down the drain just from your washing machine). These tanks will definitely help a lot. We might need more, but this will have to do for this year!
