All my water is rain water. Despite the VERY, VERY dry summer I've been lucky here in eastern N.Y. I have a 30 gallon plastic garbage can full as a main backup and collect rain mainly in 5, 3 and 1 gallon buckets. I had to go to the backup ONCE this summer for a few gallons. I fill up 1 gallon milk jugs as well and try to keep at least 3-4 in the house for the inside CPs and other plants.
Great (and funny!) thread! The things we do for our CPs!
