A few months ago I filled a tub with of surplus scrap lumber as part of the ongoing effort to clean up the corporation yard. Then it continued raining for three months and that tub filled with four of five gallons of water. Never one to waste captured rain water, I hauled the tub to the back yard and applied quality aged rain water to the crape myrtle, yarrows and ice plant.
Penumbra 10.13, Sunset 8.19 However, because of the angle that the sun is now traveling it reached only one-half of the large planter box at 10.13. The half of the box nearest the back porch and the herb garden are still sheltered by the house, probably for a few more hours.
