Ok, it's too late for everyone 2 B in the garden, so somebody check in soon please. I cut my colander handle off and pushed the colander down into my 5 gal bucket. Then I traced a mark around the inside of the bucket where the rim settled in, removed the colander and filled the bucket to see how many gallons of water would come up to the mark. I believe it was 1.5 gal, but hard to tell since I had grabbed one of my original eBuckets with an overflow hole in it. I sopped up about .25 gal of water. Ya'll can stop laughing now...
