Winter Urban Garden: I have no idea how to water
January 14, 2016
Dateline: 2015-12-17 The GreenStalk Garden System that I’m using provides many cool features, including a handy water reservoir. As you can see from the image it provides markings for how much water to add based on the number of tiers your using. The only problem is that it also has a sizable drain to flow down to the lower tiers. Filling it up to the “5” mark is almost impossible (or at least requires a HUGE amount of water) since it drains quickly. So I’m back to “winging it” for watering. Fortunately we’ve had a bit of rain in SF this winter so far, so the plants won’t die (yet).
The urban garden goes experimental

Date Line: 2015-06-28 It hasn’t been long since our last visit to the garden, less than a week in fact. However I had some free time and decided an experiment was in order. What you see pictured to the right is the mint plant, which had done fairly well since I replanted it way back in April. Unfortunately, it had done so well since some of the new shoots were dying and all of the leaves were stunted in size. The mint had outgrown its pot, again.
