Watering the Garden

Do you have a garden?  One of the hardest things for me is keeping up with watering my garden.  I know that it needs water in order to grow, but that is something I just stuggle with.  Now this is going to sounds crazy, but I can't forget to empty our dehumidifer, because if I do then our basement feels damp.  So I am always emptying out the dehumidier.  Well, what better way to water my garden.  I'm saving on water which is helping two-fold, it's less water being used, and it's free! 

When my town went through a drought a couple summers ago, we were only allowed to water our gardens on certain days.  While we were in a drought, our basement was still damp enough to fill the dehumidfer every couple of days.  That was enough to help get our garden through the drought.


Now, if watering your garden with your dehumidfier isn't up your ally, try a rain barrel instead.  I haven't been able to get one started yet, but it is on my to do list.  A rain barrel is a great way to save money and the environment when watering your garden.  Plus rain water truly is the best water for your garden! 

Here's a site that I have found helpful for my future rain barrel.
