After numerous phone calls, I found a local farmer wanting to sell his old fruit crates. We purchased six on the spot, as finding these beauties are becoming harder and harder (he has other crates to sell, so message me if you want the details).
We intend turning these crates into wicking garden beds – the goal is to source all second hand materials for the job.
What is a wicking garden bed? Basically it is a ‘water reservoir’ built into the bottom of a raised garden bed. So through capillary action (or wicking) plants are watered from the bottom.
