Well, this was the easiest bit of 'plumbing' I've ever done. Ever since I brought my crop of willow from Devon, I've been wondering whether I could use our fish pond to soak it. This seemed a bit harsh on our fish, so I advertised on Flintshire Freegle for a bath. The system is great, and the following day I was able to help a chap in Abergele get rid of part of his rubbish after a bathroom refit.
This afternoon, in an icy wind, I popped the bath onto a couple of building blocks alongside the barn and out of sight behind an IBC, handily placed to fill it. So in went the stored rainwater, and the willow, and in a few days time I'll be hoping to start my next basket.
