Here is a picture of my rain barrel! I still need to make a more permanent lid, but for now this old window shade is keeping out bugs and stuff. I just have to remember to go open it up when it rains. There is an overflow hole on the other side so I stuffed a hose into the barrel so I can water my garden without filling up watering cans and lugging them around. Unfortunately, the hose is not long enough to reach all the beds in my yard!
