Save Air Conditioning Water For Plants

Several years ago we lived in Texas during a rather long drought. My poor roses were suffering. Because we lived in an older home that didn't have central air, we used window air conditioners.

We noticed that there were puddles outside the windows with these air conditioners. We gathered some old five gallon buckets, and placed them under the drips.

Our buckets filled quite nicely. We were able to water my roses, my house plants, and a few vegetables that I had in containers on a daily basis. We are once again utilizing our free water, since we can barely afford the water bill with our basic usage.
