self watering containers

I built a self watering container tonight for a zucchini seedling. I made it from two 5 gallon buckets from a donut shop, a cottage cheese container and a piece of plastic pipe to fill the reservoir.We have six zucchini seedlings total so I have to build 5 more. This should be a very simple way for us to grow these. Its a closed system so we should only have to fill the bottom reservoir with water every few days and sit back and watch it grow. Thanks to the homegrown evolution for the self watering container idea.

  1. The self waterer is genius! I cant wait to see how this type of gardening turns out. If it works I am going to try it with my porch plants that die when I am out of town!
