Rain Cisterns

We have TWO of these beautiful 1,000 gallon rain cisterns capturing all of the rain run-off from the roof at our new place.

If you have any suggestions for vines to plant around the cisterns, I’d really appreciate hearing your suggestions.  I’m also all ears when it comes to learning more about gravity feed drip irrigation systems.  For the most part, our new garden will have mainly drought tolerant plants.  But Raoul is looking forward to a vegetable garden, and I’ll be bringing along my hydrangea (aka water hogs) babies from our last garden.  (Thanks Melody for babysitting them over the winter.)  So all our “free” rainwater will be put to good use!
