We received a ton of rain in the past week–which is fantastic considering we are probably going to be under pretty severe water restrictions this summer.  I’m not sure what the official total was, but Doug set out a couple of containers to catch some rainwater for his compost.  Here is one container, and you can see that we got a lot of rain:

    I recall an old episode of This Old House in which a water barrel was used instead of drainage pipe, and that water was used for, well, watering a backyard garden. I don\’t recall the part about standing water and mosquitoes, sorry.
