2 liter bottle. Check.
Cloth scrap. Check.
3 dollar container from Dollar General (from last season). Check.
Add soil. Wet soil. Add wet cloth.
Cover with soil to the top of container. Wet soil. Insert other end of cloth into 2 liter bottle. Fill 2 liter bottle with water.
As I was finishing this project, it occurred to me that it would improve my chances of success if I made the wick (cloth) wider thus increasing the surface area to deliver water to the soil.
Also, to avoid growing algae in the water bottle, it would help to shield it from light somehow (duct tape perhaps)
I planted Dill, Oregano, and Spinach. I’ll report on my progress.
