We have a salt lake directly behind us. When it rains it looks like a nice lake with water, the rest of the time it is bone dry.
Thyme and Oregano, these are mainly watered with dish water.
I do not own a dishwasher, so this is how I wash my dishes. First, I run the hot tap into the bucket pictured, this is used for rinsing. (Our hot water is solar and takes a while to get hot when running the tap). When the water starts to warm I then run this into the other square container to which an earth friendly detergent has been added. As you can see I don't use very much water, depending on the amount of dishes of course, if there is only a few I use very little. I wash dishes at lunch time and after tea (dinner). I used about six litres of water all up this time around. When this cools down I put it onto the herb garden.
Neighbours house with wind generator, situated across the road from us.
I couldn't help but capture this evening shadow coming through my laundry window yesterday on sundown.
Have a blessed Sunday.
