just ordered one to replace my diy p.e.t. bottle to garden
hose solution. im really eager to install it because it has
a function to filter and discard leaves and other junk that
regularly clogs the gutter.
oh yeah plus it helps saving water. drought everywhere and
due to shortage of water, i hear in some areas, watering
your garden now is prohibited.

ha, no, i just live in a regular residential area flat for
rent with roughly a hundred neighbours in the same
courtyard/block. but there are many gardens in here and we
can hang out and grow in ours.
but yeah i kinda feel like settling down :)

and believe it or not many german communities and major
cities are havin trouble managing their drinking water
during this ongoing drought. its still raining a lot, but it
has been constantly raining less than usual, for the past
years, while temperatures were rising, so the earth is not
saturated to the way it was he past years. and when it does
the rain often comes so hard and sudden, the soil cannot
absorb it properly. it literally all goes down the drain,
leading to floods. last year half a village has been ripped
away including houses and people sleeping in there. trees
dry out and die or get eaten by bugs. it may sound a little
overdramatic considering the events all around the world but
we´re beginning to experience the effetcs of global warming
even in our rich and green little state.

anyway, we grow a lot these days. my gf sowed different
kinds of tomatoes, zucchini, sugar peas, pumpkins and
cantaloupes on the balcony. along with strawberries and a
few herbs and plants. a wisteria climbs around. and we have
been able to water them with just 4 watering cans from tap
water so far and about a hundred cans of collected rain.

we already harvested lots of herbs and tons of berries from
the garden to eat in cereals or bake pies and hopefully the
trees will bear fruit in the near future too :)

its amazing to just sit watch the bees and birds and all the
other critters go along in there and do their thing and pray
that we would never ever have to leave this place.
