Hanging Gardens - 5/12/08

Here's a new picture of the hanging planters. Some of the plants got a little battered during the heavy rain and wind of the past few days. Everything still seems to be attached and growing well.

You may notice the green bottles in the top...they are supposed to provide a water source. They consist of a 2-liter bottle with a specialized plastic spike on the end. The theory is they are supposed to only let out enough water seep out to keep the soil moist, but I've had trouble keeping them filled. They seem to be working today, as they were about half filled with rain water. I'll continue to experiment with these to ensure sufficient hydration during summer vacations.
