Sub-irrigated Planters(SIPs) - boxes, beds or buckets - Grow fast, grow good, save water, save time, eat clean...go green!
Using the design for an "earthtainer" I set up a garden for tomatos on my back deck, cost was about $35/box but most of that cost is initial setup, and next year will be reduced to about $20. They use roughly 40% less water than a typical garden so they're very eco friendly, overall they have grown so quickly I need to build a better support system for the biggest ones. The two biggest ones were planted May 3rd.
