    so smart. how long have you been in horticulture? you're knowledge and advice from on the job experience and experimentation is amazing. You must have had great teachers and pure love of it. But we'll done and thank you. From Australia.

    I like this a lot! I'm thinking, if you were to raise the unit up a bit, with a drip pan below, and a spigot off of that, after a bit of rain, you would have enough tea to fertilize other areas of your garden.

    Very good idea. I would like to try stacking a couple, but might take a little bit of engineering. For the pests maybe perimeter of diatomaceous earth around the base of the barrel, or something sticky around the base of the barrel like dish soap or double sided tape.

    Good for the apartment dweller as well. I'd put it on a frame with casters to allow me to move it about, if necessary. The central pipe should be 3 or 4 inch diameter. I think the 2 inch is a bit small. When cutting the slots, if you drill at the ends of the cut lines it will make it easier to bend out.

    thanks for the idea . I had seen these before but not put together and explained as good. How did the strawberries do? I would like to plant strawberries but the few plants I planted last year only gave me a hand full of berries. I would like to try this container for a more plentiful harvest.

    That looks awesome. I've never had any luck gardening, but I'm always looking for methods that might work in my area. Two questions: what do you use for soil (dirt from the yard, something store bought, etc.) and when you water, do you water directly in the compost tube, or do you water the top of the soil and let it sink in?

  • SpiritofWildWings 1 year ago

    Great video, and a great idea.
    Just one question I have which wasn't addressed…
    So how would one determine how often you need to water the thing?

    This is amazing. I don't have a lot of room to work with. Thanks so much for all your videos. I'm gonna give gardening another shot this year. My greenhouse got destroyed, so I have to start over.

    HI HT. I enjoy your videos , they are very good and I love your blue gray eyes , you are a very beautiful lady. I don't mean to sound creepy , but it is nice to here some times, and you have a great way to build a garden , but build it for three dollars or so , for you I can see way, but me and the rest of the guys, 30 or are more dollars.. lol . What do you do when the tube fills up full of compost over time ? what do you do then.  ?  take care HT.  we live in Roberts, la.  but we are in fl. right now. can't Waite to get back home.  🙂    rusty.
