      How to Build A Rain Barrel. Every gardener and garden needs a rain barrel. By harvesting rainwater you can cut your bills and water your garden for free. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to build your own rain barrels, and this simple design is perfect for any outdoor space. You can connect your hose straight to it, or fill up a watering can. I would love to do this! I wonder how long you can store rain water and if melting snow also works. #PinMyDreamBackyard

    Bee homes

    Reclaimed wood transforms a blue barrel (or ugly plastic pot) into a beautiful planter.

    Mason bees don't sting, don't swarm, and don't make honey. But they *do* pollinate plants way better than regular bees. Put up a mason bee house, order some bees, and enjoy your harvest.

    Very smart! Rinse veggies right in the garden and then re-use the water on the plants. Plastic bucket and small laundry basket/colander from Dollar Tree would do nicely. | protractedgarden
