    I replaced the metal downspout in my back yard with a plastic tube, and it empties into a 55-gallon covered garbage can.

    For the first year, before I had too many plants, i collected rainwater in 5-gallon pails, and filled on gallon jugs from them.

    But that was time-consuming, and required positive action on my part. The 55-gallon can works great now, although i still will arrange 5-gallon pails to collect more water and fill as many one-gallon jugs as is convenient, especially now that my collection has grown. I find I am running out of rainwater, even with the 55-gallon can.

    I may need to set up a second one.

    I would love to be able to set up a large drum to collect water, but I can not were I currently live.
    Hopefully after Sat night and hitting the 215 million Powerball all that will change............I love to dream, with everyone else.

    Hey stay away from my powerball winnings..
    Agh, I don't think I'm nuts. My neighbors might tho..
    I will just sit at the picnic table watching the plants grow.. and picking the helicopters from the maple tree out of the pots. Misting them. Sticking little bugs on the dews.

    Well yeah once my growlist gets so long I have to take a break while scrolling down the page I'll have to do laps too.
    Mine all fit nicely on a picinic table (with room for more yet) so I can just sit.
