The other day I mentioned to DH that it's a shame we drain the kids' bath water, and that I could use it in the garden. The reasons I don't are (1) I don't really have the time or energy to haul all those buckets down the stairs and through the house, and (2) I don't like to leave the tub full during the night (when it's not a good time to water) with young and mobile children in the house.
So, he says, "Why don't you just siphon the water through the window?"
I thought it was brilliant, and I'm wondering if anyone else here has done that. I guess I could siphon it into a rain barrel? I'd love any suggestions you could give me! We've been here six years, had drought for two, and the way things are going, we're probably looking at another restricted year. It has been terribly dry here this spring. So, I want to do whatever I can to conserve water.
