Build Your Own Self-Watering Container Garden : Planet Green

I’ve seen the mailorder units and they work great, especially for tomatoes. The only problem I see with the one pictured in the linked article is the use of a nearly transparent tub which might result in algae growth in the water and cause the roots to keep away from the sides. Going to try one or more this year instead of fighting with the ground. Will try to get pix and post about it when I do.

    Neat. I am thinking of a gray-water recovery system to water Sue’s plants, with a small pump and some tubing to distribute the water. Probably more trouble than it’s worth, but I need to do some thinking and see.

    Instructables is a neat site! And a little bit scary, like the guy that takes frensel lenses from old rear projection TVs and melts things with them….
