Off-Grid Self-Watering Container Gardening System: The Ultimate Container

Now that you have the basics of this system by watching the first two videos I share with you my “ultimate container”. I don’t know of a better container to produce more food in less space than this ultimate container. Due to many reasons including the variations of plants, the density of planting and the ability to stack these containers make them the ultimate container for container gardening. Imagine being able to grow forty plants in a one foot area!

      I now only use the fish emulation(FM) as my main fertilizer for both veg garden and fruit trees.Last 2 yrs great results almost 2x produce. I also add FM (25/75) during soil prep instead of h20 staring new beds and also new plants get placed in a 10% FM just before planting. and I always keep a ready supply of? FM when watering. Last yr place 10%FM in spray bottle direct to plant leaf good results

    2. LDSPrepper Says:

      Excellent. Since? we don’t hand water with this system how do you see we could incorportate FM here?

      How will you deal with sun angles and “shadow side” plants? don’t you need to rotate the bucket from times to times to give the same ligh to each plant? One possible way would be to get some “Pizza rotate plate” to put it under and? maybe with some bicycle chain to “spin it” with some power thing (non electrical windmill, water, electricity, etc…).

      Very good! Now I’ve got to see what kind of buckets I have around here so I can do the same thing.?

    5. LDSPrepper Says:

      Being able to move the containers for best sun exposure is one of the benefits of? this system.

    6. ByNatureFarms Says:

      I would think that the weight would split the water bucket? especially when stacking.

    7. LDSPrepper Says:

      That is always a possibility. ?

      Thanks for your videos! Am so busy with nursing school that I thought? there was no way to have a garden. Will give this a try. God bless you.

    9. LDSPrepper Says:

      I think you? will be pleasantly surprised at how little work (basicly none) it will take growing food this way. Please let us know how it goes.

      I am currently attempting your project. I love the idea of stacking, but how would you get the wick to work? Do I just push the top bucket sock how far into the dirt, or should? it go through and touch the first sock?

    11. LDSPrepper Says:

      Thanks for asking. It is best if? you can have the top bucket sock connected to the bottom bucket sock. That will ensure no breaks in the wick. However getting the top bucket sock into the growing mix in the bottom bucket may work too. Let me know what you experience.

      I really want to thank you very much for these videos. They have gotten me excited to garden again this year. My husband & I were discouraged with our raised? bed gardening & having to constantly weed & haul in more & more dirt every year. This is so exciting & it just so happens that we have tons of buckets to use so this is going to be a breeze for us. Herbs, lettuce, cucumbers & tomatoes will all grow great in this style you show for the strawberries

    13. livingwell4less Says:

      You helped solve a huge problem for us. We have a steep slope in our backyard? & were trying to use it as part of our garden. We had 2 raised beds on the slope. The pumpkins at the top grew perfectly, but watermelons at the bottom did not. This was because all the water would flow down the slope & pool up at the bottom of the bed. We were frustrated b/c we need this space…now we will place the buckets w/ this watering system in the beds & solve the issue. They can just vine out of the buckets

    14. LDSPrepper Says:

      Awesome! Great thinking. I”m? glad this helped.

    15. LDSPrepper Says:

      No weeding, no watering,? no fertilizing. What’s not to love. I’m glad your excited about gardening again.

      You? have just got me interested in gardening again! The watering and weeding killed my interest last year. Thanks a lot for your share!

    17. LDSPrepper Says:

      Awesome.? That is why I’m making this video series. Thanks for commenting.

    18. anyonefindAMERICA1 Says:

      Thank you.? No more weeding for me! 😉

    19. stieny72 Says:

      As far as? how far water will wick, remember water travels to the tops of trees partly by capillary action. 🙂

    20. LDSPrepper Says:

      Excellent point. Thanks? for commenting.

      Thank you for viewing and commenting.?

      i was all ready to try this from another site that showed tubes you have to fill. now you really have me going….boy this really makes me want to do this. Only thing is, since i’ve never gardened and we have? a lot of squirrels and rabbits – do you have any tips for keeping them off my new carefree garden?

    24. LDSPrepper Says:

      I don’t have a problem with rabbits or squirrels here. I would think there is a lot of info on YouTube or search engines about “rabbit fencing” or something? like that.
