Collect Rainwater In the Spring?

Does anybody have ideas/solutions for gathering rainwater from a metal roof with no gutters, downspouts, etc? I feel like all this beautiful free water is wasted.

If you're a gardener, take advantage of the spring showers to stock up on free water. We collect rainwater in large trash barrels behind our garage from the drainage off of the roof. We fill them using a hose which is connected to the drainpipe. We cover each barrel with its lid and have plenty of water for the flower and vegetable gardens. Then, every time it rains, we collect the water until all the barrels are full. Last year when we had a drought, we supplied the neighbors with vegetables since we were the only ones able to maintain our garden!
