After much pondering and hand-wringing and trips to ogle its beauty at Green Alternatives, we 'took the plunge'...
into rainbarrel stewardship!
Tom set it up in no time, and after a couple of Spring showers, IT WAS FULL OF WATER! Turn the handle, water for the garden flows out, free and without chemical additives and, well, free! It's positioned on the side of the house in the vegetable garden, so we just fill up the watering cans and refresh the plants.
Here are a few garden photos from this weekend:

Though we wander in this world that is not our true home, we are called to be stewards of its goodness. Take care of your little plot of this earth, no matter how small. Dig and water and nurture. Grow something. Enjoy its freshness on your plate. Share it with others.
"Build homes, and plan to stay. Plant gardens, and eat the food they produce."
