Self-watering container #1!

Here is a self-watering container Ian made today with his little girl. This design was made using the instructions from "The Urban Homestead; Your Guide to Self-sufficient Living in the Heart of the City", by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen. We plan to make more! Stay tuned this summer to see how well it works. 
The necessary tools.

The Materials
"I got a hole in my bucket..."

Putting it together

Almost there
A little help with the lid.

Make sure to put a 1/4 inch hole in the reservoir bucket for the over-flow. 
The final product!
