The Garden Sink (Sort of)
I got a brilliant idea from the Montana Wildlife Gardener. An outdoor Garden Sink! I thought it was absolutely genius. I filed it away as a projects we should do for our household.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore. We also had to buy a hose convertor so that we could hook the sink hoses directly up to the hose on the back of the house. Even still the whole thing cost less than $30. And we have the wood for the frame already, too, so that part will be free.
We popped a five gallon bucket under the drain to catch the dirty water and in that way all the soil ends up back in the garden and the water is doubly used--once for washing veg for eating and again for watering the plants still growing in the garden. I think that is super-duper. I love stretching water use and conserving water--every little bit helps!
