It rains AND it pours!
With the long dry spell continuing and no sign of rain, there is increasing concern about watering. As the only tap brings us UV filtered drinking water, we do not want to waste resources by using this for irrigation.
After much thought by our resident genius engineer, there was suddenly a simple solution. harvest the rain from the roof of the polytunnel. The volume of water pouring off this is colossal and to trap the overflow would be fantastic.
Some strip;s of unprepared timber, some sealant and some self tapping screws and hey presto! We are away. The first rain shower filled up half a 200 litre bucket. Simple but effective.
