Very interesting observation on the SWCs. I can see how that particular covering acts as a giant funnel.
Your dog is tooo funny!
We have had so much rain over the past several weeks that many of the plants in the regular garden beds are showing water stress. I can see how the plastic lid creates a holding tank and funnel for the rainwater aggravating an already large rain event by storing and holding even more of it.
rachel - yeah, it's definitely causing issues with the soil moistureJeff - Jude is a really good dog, but she gets in the way sometimes. Heh.kitsapFG - I just wish the rain would stop, and maybe some soil moisture control could take place.
Hm, very good point, EG. Live and learn, right? I have no doubt that you will cogitate and ruminate for a while, and come up with a typically ingenious solution. You always do!
Hi. I was looking your instructions for SWC's. What do you do with the cup that sucks up the water from the bottom? Do you only do one hole or many?Thanks
sb - i'll come up with something..Peggi - the cup is filled with soil, so it can wick water up into the mass of growing media above it. I just do one hole for a swc/swp less than 5 gallons.
Thanks for the answer. How many holes for the 18 gallon tote? I was looking at the tutorial and couldn't see where you tell how many holes for that and how big. Love your blog!
Peggi - 3 holes for an 18 gal. Thanks for the compliment!
