My husband actually made a rain barrel out of a used food-grade barrel (used to hold vinegar). The barrel itself cost 13 dollars and the parts cost 20. He actually got a load of 35 of them, sold them to our neighbors at cost and then made it into a neighborhood project--- putting them together as a group. They were blue and not so pretty but ours is back behind bushes and several neighbors successfully painted them to match their homes. We had wanted one for years. There are lots of ideas online for how to make them if the money is an issue.ut they were so darned expensive...

We would get ticketed if we didn't water our lawn--city law, not HOA.. It is also illegal to harvest rain water here, as it is in most western states. So, I just turned half of my front lawn into a vegetable garden, figuring if I have to water anyway, I might as well get something useful out of it.
