Self-Watering Container Gardening System: Richard’s Garden

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Richard has added eight containers of various sizes and shapes to his self-watering container garden, one of which is the EarthBox. He used the two EarthBoxes last year but with very little success because he couldn’t keep up with the watering because of the drought and his traveling. Now, by attaching the EarthBoxes to the self-watering system he only has to check one water reservoir and all eight of his containers will get watered. He and his wife like to travel so they could connect the float bucket to a garden hose and be gone for an extended period of time and not worry about watering, fertilizing or weeding their garden.

          Will a vegetable garden increase my homes value?

          Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

          We’re replacing our decks railing, so I thought it would be nice to use it as a fence around some raised vegetable garden beds. We’re planning on selling the house in 5 years or so, would this be appealing to buyers? A nice vegetable garden? Thanks!

                    Gardening: Birds, Bees & Blueberries

                    Saturday, April 7th, 2012

                    The birds ate all but one of my blueberries last year. They are not getting any this year. Using PVC pipe I put up some inexpensive netting (not bird netting) that keeps the birds out and lets the bees in. Because I painted the PVC black it looks good in the backyard.
