SWC's (Self Watering Containers)

I think I mentioned before, I was trying gardening in SWC's . Well, its going pretty good with the first sets. I made 20 and only used a couple so far.

I tried carrots in one of these as last year, we couldn't till the garden deep enough for the carrots and they grew crooked. So with the deeper tiller, it shouldn't be a problem. So we planted some in ground as well. You see, Carrots need light soft soil so they can grow straight.


This SWC has onions. I had some seeds laying around so threw them in just to see if they would grow and they did. One is ready to pick for fresh green onions in our next Taco Salad. Yum! The others have a ways to go. We also planted some in ground.
