Initially I was just using a watering can to transport the water to the thirsty plants.

7/18/11 Yesterday I blogged about the contradiction of worrying about empty rain barrels and letting gallons of water go down the drain every day from showers. Thanks to my fellow GardenTenders, a solution was developed: use a syphon to draw water out of the bathtub and down into a rain barrel. So, this morning, Rick and I went shopping. First stop: Lowes.
