Homegrown Is Best! How to make EarthBox like Self Watering Containers

Ever since I was a child, as long as I could remember, my family had a garden.   Gardening to Italians is a way of life.   There is nothing like going into your back yard and picking fresh vegetables and herbs for use right before you need them…

In this modern age, however, some folks may not have the luxury of yard space to grow food.   Many city folks want to be able to grow food, but don’t have the space or usable land..   Veggies don’t grow in concrete!   But…  Thanks to advances in modern gardening methods, they can grow ON concrete.

I recently made some self watering containers and posted a video on YouTube to demonstrate how these awesome self watering planters could be made from just a few items from the local store…

These work great for growing Tomatoes, Eggplant, Zucchini, and other Italian Favorites…  

Now, if only I could find a Mozzarella tree, I would be in good shape!

Check out my video and give it a shot!   Be sure to use Potting Mix, not Potting Soil!  Also, use a good organic fertilizer.
