|Some old downpipe was recycled as the watering for the wicking bed. Pipe ran flat along |
the bottom of the bath and had slits cut to allow water to run out into the bottom of the bath.
|After adding and wetting the wicking layer of straw we filled the baths |
with some good garden soil.
|Testing the wicking pipes.|
|Now for some seedlings - lettuce in the front bathtub.|
|Taller plants in the back tub (sweet corn at the moment - we might plant some |
beans and cucumbers in here at the next working be).
Can't wait to see how they are coming along.... might have to visit for a quick peek on the weekend.
