I am not sure if this is the right category.
I live on the first floor of an apartment in the inner city. I do have a small garden. Every year, we get a month of solid rain, followed by several months of high heat and (mostly) dry weather. So my garden suffers from rainy season, and then it is a struggle every day during the summer to keep it properly hydrated.
I would love to be able to store some of the abundant rain water that we get during rainy season to use during our dry months in the garden.
I could just put out buckets or containers, but then, how would I store the water in my apartment? If possible, I do not want to buy a water storage tank, because there is no room in my garden, and they are quite expensive.
If enough water could be stored, that would really cut down on the cost of watering the garden in the summer.
Any advice is appreciated!
