Step 1: The Basic Materials: 2 Five Gallon Buckets, Stones and Moisture Control Soil
Step 2: One Container is the Resevoir and It Gets Pebbles and a Small Hole or Two
Once you put the 1/2 inch hole, 3 inches from the bottom, add pebbles up to the level of the hole. You resevoir bucket/container is now complete.
Step 3: Make the Second Container by Drilling 15 to 35 Holes in It's Bottom
This container will hold the moisture control soil mix and the tomato.
Step 4: Fill One Container With Pebbles and the Other with Soil and a Tomato
I am adding water for no real reason in the picture but to show the process of water being held in the stones.
The other container should be filled with the soil mix. Leave about 2 or 3 inches from the top so you can fill it with water without splashing out the soil.
Step 5: Place the Container with the Tomato into the Resevoir Container
Move the container to where you want it and then water the tomato in. Your done!
Step 6: How the Tomatoes Look Weeks Later
