In August last year, after it had been really hot for several weeks, I realized I wasn’t watering our vegetable garden enough. I had been watering enough to keep the plants alive, but barely. Nothing was producing.
About the same time I noticed our air-conditioner drain that is not 20 feet from the vegetable garden. Here was a free source of water!
I put a 5 gallon bucket underneath the spout. I was surprised to find the bucket full the next morning. It was full again that evening.
During the hottest part of the summer, we have an extra 10 gallons of water a day to keep plants going, and this water is absolutely free.
What ideas/discoveries have you made to capture/reuse water?
