Permaculture Garden: Setting Up For Rain + Comfrey Update
Mid September. The change in the weather has been gradual. Temperatures have fallen off and the skies have been overcast. With a slight chance for rain we set up our receptacles in hopes of harvesting the rain for later use.
In the desert, rain is a scarce event. For this gardener, rain barrels do not see enough rain to find them practical. Rather, we use various receptacles like the green waste bin to collect rain. When not collecting rain (which is a good part of the year), those receptacles can be used for other purposes.
