The rain started at about 9 am Sunday morning and never stopped. As a gardner(-in-training), I was overjoyed; until I ran out of watering cans, buckets, and unused decorative plant pots to store water in, lol. That was when I strongly started considering investing in a rainwater storage unit.
As you might be aware, rainwater is soft and filled with minute minerals that plants love. I’ve been collecting it and watering my seedlings with it for the past month or so and, although I can’t confirm it as the only reason, the plants have thrived and grown incredibly quickly. Of course, the unseasonably warm weather we’ve enjoyed for the past few weeks may have something to do with that as well, lol! 😉
There have been a few battles; namely, our favorites – Aphids & Snails! Ahhh, the season has really begun!
