Greywater oasis: July update

Two months ago, I posted this picture:


Now look!

 

I'd say the greywater experiment has been a rousing success.

Wow. It looks like our place! Don't you just love banana trees next to the house?!

I wish I could do gray water here,but Hillsborough Cnty. considers it the worst crime in the world...

How do you KNOW it's the greywater? my newly planted cavendish bananas look like that, but it's been because of the rains this month. You should see the size of the weeds!

Good question. All my bananas are doing good, as are my malangas. They love all the endless rain... but these are really going nuts.

I have plants elsewhere in the yard that aren't quite as amazing. Wish I could run all my greywater outside but the slab construction of my home makes that almost impossible without a major refit, dang it. Rachel does laundry with our homemade lard soap... the washing machine output would be great... if the builders hadn't put the laundry room dead center in the house.

I'm so tempted to build an outdoor laundry area...

My neighbors have an outdoor laundry area. Really, though, it's just their washer and dryer on the outside of their house, no roof or anything to protect them from the weather. Been there for years too. I'm surprised no one has stolen them, perhaps the 4 foot chain link fence and tiny yapping dog are adequate theft deterrent. :)
