Rain Barrel Planter May Finally Impress That Old Lady Next Door

Please excuse my headline, as it’s not meant to classify all old ladies living throughout the nation as anti-rain barrel, manicured-lawn-loving, nosey individuals. I have just happened to experience such a person in my past — and their reaction to some of my green projects — and couldn’t resist.
But back to the subject — this rain barrel planter from Yardiac is a nice way to disguise your eco-conscious decision to save precious water. It’s also great for those that are less impressed with the hourglass design of most rain catchers and are looking for something a bit “boxier”. Its 55-gallon capacity will certainly fill up quickly — but for watering the flowers or vegetable garden, it should fit the bill. Plus, those flowers will come in handy for appeasing the old lady after you install that wind turbine in your back yard. <grin>.
