Default Rain water barrel

Woo-hoo! I'm kinda proud of myself. I have build a rain water barrel out of a used 55 gal plastic food-safe container. They used it to transport an orange juice concentrate (that's what it smells like). I'm gonna use it to water my vegetable garden and my hops.

Kudos to helping mitigate runoff from your roof and not taking extra water out of your local source. Can you tell I'm a stormwater geek?

My parents just pick up 2 rain water barrels for their home. I think the barrels used to store pickles or some other pickled/brined food.
