Greenhouse H2O

The plans for getting water to the greenhouse evolved over time. The initial plan was to have rainwater barrels immediately behind the structure to capture water from the roof and feed into the sink area. This requires an elevated structure for the barrels to generate enough pressure, and a gutter system for the roof edges.

However, the collection from the main house was already in place and much more robust, so plan B is to run a hose for now from those barrels, and feed the sink area. Not very elegant, but functional, and it avoids/delays the whole gutter solution for the greenhouse itself. The pump and the timer will be powered by the Jackery, although a long extension could reach the side of the house. This whole setup may be revisited at some point…..
