Despite the recent increase in area rainfall (and the discussion about how it might have come to be), there is still a great deal of time before we see an end to Birmingham’s extreme drought. Some of our residents are becoming increasingly creative with how they plan to save their outdoor plants. One example can be found over at My Tiny Kingdom as Anne explores how she can save her plants while still being mindful of the conditions around her.

A bunch of folks in my neighborhood are doing the graywater thing, too - someone mentioned it in the comments on Anne's blog, but putting a bucket under your a/c condenser will get you water for your greenies too. I'm also considering putting my kegger trash can next to my washing machine and seeing how much water it uses (it's supposed to be really water-efficient but i bet it'd still be enough for some of my plants / yard)
