Backyard Garden and Rainwater is Path to Better Living
My regular readers know I started a garden a few months ago. I planted carrots, strawberries, and blackberries. I put radishes in large planters and they are ready to be pulled and eaten. The carrots are almost there. The berries will come next month. They have been a disappointment, but they may bear fruit later than what I expected.
I also ripped out some bushes and made a place along the North side of my house for two, 60 gallon rainwater barrels.
I added a water filtration system a few years ago from Kinetico.
All these things add up over time. I have filtered water to water the plants. I will have backup rainwater for the drier months. And I will have my own veggies and berries. Years ago I planted rosemary and lavender bushes. The rosemary is a great herb for adding to sauces and to season meat. The lavender just smells wonderful. I know it can be used in soaps. Maybe I will give that a try.
Money not spent on veggies and berries is a good thing.
I bought the starter plants at Walter Andersons in San Diego of Pacific Coast Highway. I will provide the source info for the rainwater system once I get that project completed.
