I built and planted my first self-watering container on May 10th. It was planted with three tomato plants, Carbon on the left and Matina in the middle and right.
Tomato growing conditions have not been ideal, rain nearly every day and little heat. Average temp in the last month has been about 68 degrees.
Those conditions have not held back my plants at all. All three plants already have fruit on them, and as you can see, growth has been exhuberant! I've never had baby tomatoes this early in the season before. I am thrilled with how well these containers are working. To the right of them, the purple potatoes seem equally pleased with the container I made them.
Now if I could only get that dumb watermelon to grow!
