We finally got a little bit of rain yesterday and today the sky looks promising for some more of the wet stuff.
It’s been in the high 80’s to mid 90’s around here with full sun for a couple of weeks and now my lettuce has bolted and some of my onions are blooming.
And while in the subject of rain, the people in Colorado are apparently reconsidering their ban on collecting rain water. What!? (you may exclaim). Yep,
it is considered stealing in Colorado, what, with all the water politics out West.
Our own rain barrel maker here in Wichita keeps making it in the news because rain water collecting is taking off like a rocket along with gardening and raising your own food.
Now, I called one of the local soda pop bottlers in town to ask if I could get a couple of 55 gallon drums where the soda syrup comes in and I was informed by a very friendly lady there that the State of Kansas is collecting the drums for a state-wide rain barrel project. Mmmmm… I immediately went to the State’s web site but all my search efforts turned nothing about this. I guess I’ll just have to wait.
Over and out.
