Simple Green: Collect Rainwater

Simple Green: Collect Rainwater

Jun 5, 2009

It was misting this morning, so on our way out the door we moved our watering can to the front steps, where we have a lilac, snapdragon, and geranium. We love that this saves water — and a trip back upstairs to our apartment. Do you collect rainwater?

While going green isn't hard, it's sometimes easier than we thought. We get a little nervous leaving our watering can so accessible in the mean streets of Brooklyn, but haven't had anything happen yet. (Knock on wood.) Up next, we're going to leave an extra bucket out there for the plants in the house.

What do you do?
