I'm going to use mine like an Earthbox. It's going outside. Maybe a tomato plant or carrots.

Why not? You probably need to drill an overflow drain hole in the side just above the reservoir platform, or use a gas tank siphon to remove excess rain water. Good luck with you sub-irrigated veggie growing. Betcha can't use just one. ;-)


Ikea has come out with some new sub-irrigated planters that come in more than one size. I have an Earthbox but can't afford to buy another one so I'm going to buy one of these new Ikea planters ($10) and also plant veggies in it. Good idea on making an overfill hole.
