I have everything looking good right now, but a little bit behind. I've already had swiss chard, cucumbers, strawberries...basil, cilantro,italian parsley, sugar pea pods...all good. I hope to have cherry tomatos by monday. As far as the watering goes for those of you in restrictive areas..Poke a hole in one of the bottom "feet" of a 2 liter bottle. Fill the bottle with water and tighten the cap. It won't drip. Place the bottle next to your plant and loosent the cap. It will drip water 2L of water over 1/2 hour...Set up one for each plant. Very efficient watering.
