    Is the yarn or string put into the dirt first and lead to the water below ? Would you take it apart to refill with water ?

      I think you would just lift the top part(with the plant) and add water to the bottom?

    Would this be a good way to grow tomato plants once they have germinated?

    Tap water, except in Flint, MI, is perfectly ok to drink. People who can’t afford it are purchasing bottled water unnecessarily.

    In addition billions, not millions, of bottles are overfilling land fills.


    DO NOT BUY WATER, you already buy it once from your local municipality. Thanks, Kit
