Mine doesn't produce enough water to be significant for watering garden plants.

I have a pan under my a/c drain, with lumps of clay in it. During the hot, dry weather, the potter wasps, the mason bees, the organ pipe wasps, and the mud daubers can get mud for their nests. The bees help with pollination and these gentle wasps are great for pest control in the garden.

Honeybees will also come, and the clay lumps keep them from drowning as they drink.
Oh, I like this!


40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

It's getting bad in the hills... I can't keep water in the tank, it has gone from watering the garden or showers/baths to maybe I can run a load of laundry today... Please rain...

We FINALLY got some rain over the last two days and I may have to cut the grass for the first time in over a month but I am glad I don't have to water the garden, for now.
One of my cucumber plants did not survive but the other three did and I planted 4 more from seed in May but they are only about 8 inches tall. I am hopefull though and will get a better idea on Sunday as I have to work tomorrow.

Been an odd summer and in my 60+ years cannot remember this dry of a June....
