Happiness is a full rain barrel (x3)

By Published On: March 16th, 20210.5 min readCategories: Photos

Yeah, all the cold and rain at the end of winter put a crimp in my garden starting plans, but I knew that was going to happen anyway. (Hooray for my #greenhouse!)

The upside is when spring does finally get here, and the rain disappears until November, I’ve got three rain barrels full of free water and a nifty gravity system for distributing it.

When you live in a state that’s in a perpetual drought and charges you an arm and a leg for water, that’s a very good feeling.

Sage Osterfeld
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
