Water bucket and trough with an open drain
1
Drill drainage holes in the bottom of the trough.
2
Add soil for fill. I used junk soil in the bottom.
3
Then I followed up by adding potting soil on top.
4
Wet and pack down your soil around the smaller bin.
5
Fill your water bucket.
6
Add a solar fountain pump.
7
The special nozzles are really pretty, but the wind here tends to blow some of the water out of the bucket.
I removed the tip to the fountain so it wouldn't lose water.
I added some carrot seeds to the soil and we will see how they grow!
