Outdoor Sink Makes Water Recycling Simple - This sink is ridiculously easy to make from "found" or repurposed parts. The sink is hooked up to an outdoor hose (no plumbing) and water from it goes into a simple 5 gallon bucket to collect grey water that can be used on landscape. Now instead of going inside to wash garden produce, it can be done at the outdoor sink. - tomorrows adventures | tomorrows adventures

By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared.
