Smell Like Dirt

In Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood

Rain Barrels

We’ve uploaded a new video on installing a rain barrel. With the drought we are experiencing in the Southeast, its important to save every drop of rain we are lucky to get. Special credit to Lauri Shubert of Lake City, Florida, for risking malaria and West Nile Virus in getting the mosquito photo used in the video. Great job, Lauri! Ah, what friends will do for each other………

Unfortunately no guarantee that it will rain comes with the barrel. Nevertheless, we must do these things. There is no option for folks who care about stuff like the earth.
Good vid cbj. Keep it up. I dream a day when Meck County laughs at water restrictions ’cause we all got barreled.

Found my way to your blog through another blog – Simply Thrifty. My husband and I have been recently discussing adding a rainbarell and the video was very informative. BTW really like the video blogs!
