Wicking bed how to.. A self watering garden bed..

Hi Folks. Here a Wicking Bed “How To” on the self watering garden beds we like to use here. They conserve a lot of water & with the help of compost worms these beds will grow you a ton of produce for years to come. Have included links below to other wicking beds & barrels we’ve made up.
Hope the clip gives you a few ideas to play with. ?

The original Idea belongs to Colin Austin.
Scarecrows garden blog is another place that sold me on the idea.

Test Shot (2000-05-17 17.03.37)
The first shot taken on my new
Samsung Galaxy S II
Android smartphone. Straight-out-of-camera with no processing (or should that be straight-out-of-phone?) The sky is a complete washout but trust me- that’s how it looked, although it was on centre weighted metering. I’ve switched it to matrix now and I’ll try it again tomorrow if I get the chance. It does 1080p HD video too which is just crazy for such a slim and light device.

Its had a camera firmware update since this was taken so not sure what difference that might make.
