Rain Water into Wine?

rain-barrel-blowoutSo … I bought a really nice rain barrel yesterday. Cindy and Kelly from the Rain Barrel Company in Raleigh, North Carolina, dropped it off on their swing through D.C.  It’s made from a recycled Greek olive shipping container. It even has little Greek pictures and words on the side.

NOW what do I do?

I’m trying to figure out how to set it up with the rain spout in a location that is still accessible for filling up the water cans to water the front “postage stamp” vegetal patch.

Somehow all this made more sense in the Central Valley of California when it didn’t rain for months on end.

Do you think this is the kind of barrel Jesus stood over when he changed the water into wine? Hmmm.
