My relatives who live in the Black Forest of Germany store all of their rainwater in barrels to use for their extensive vegetable garden in their back yard. It is both free and pure water. Now folks in Northwest Ohio can take advantage of the rain that now runs down to the sewers and into the lake for their gardens.
The American Rivers and the City of Toledo’s Storm Water Program are currently running a “sale” for rain barrels. Call 877-977-3135 to order, or order on line at http://www.nerainbarrel.com/. Order online, then pick up locally. Delivery date is Saturday March 29th from 9 a.m. to noon at the Erie Street Market.
