Now you can have a vegetable garden pretty much anywhere where there is sun. You can have a little patio or you can have a big deck or you can have acres with a vegetable garden. Now to collect water you can have any type of bowl or you can have a garbage can you can have gutters coming off of your greenhouse or your house right into containers, and then you can have the water pumped right into your vegetable garden. Now the easy way to do that is just to take a garbage can, and just cut your gutter down, and then just set that underneath, and then the water goes right into the buckets. Then you can collect the water as you need it for your vegetable garden. And it is really a simple way to do it. You can use little kiddie pools like if you have a little child's pool.
