    Off-Grid Self-Watering Container Gardening System: 100% Hands-Free Watering Conversion

    Monday, May 21st, 2012

    Most “self-watering” planters you see at stores are really only self wicking. You still need to manually add water to the each plant container. With my system we have been adding water to one water container, a 5 gallon bucket. With my plants growing larger and the weather heating up the plants are using more water each day. They are up to five gallons of water a day right now. This video shows how to convert from using a 5 gallon bucket to a garden hose or a 275 gallon ICB tote to water your container garden 100% hands free.

      Ten women got together at my house to build their own self-watering container gardening systems. We had a great time together. Each system was personalized with their own plants.

          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.

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

            Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

            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!
