I pretty much have done the same thing in constructing my rain barrel except that instead of screening material I used an old sheer curtain cut to the right size and just tied a piece of thin rope around it to hold it in place.

Great article! The publication is timely, too. I know, everybody is thinking -- timely?? It's not summer, we're not having a drought. Right! It's not spring or summer yet, and we're not out in the garden every spare minute. Winter is a great time for projects like this that we know we will be very, very glad to have done when summer is here!

Thanks so much, Glynis! Rain barrels have been on my To Do list for some time now - your article will come in handy when I'm ready to get started.

YEAH! Everyone, I'm so glad to see you are all thinking about making rain barrels! That is just great news.

Thanks also for those who emailed me with questions or suggestions. We all learn from each other when we share our project success and failure!
