1 Ortega plant. No selection. Placed in sub-irrigated planted I made this year in my backyard.

This is the planter: (it is a used compost bin that someone threw out)

This is how the planter was made: (Reservoir with gravel in the bottom lets water disperse and be wicked up, remainder is filled with soil)

Ingenuity is not dead and we learn from our experience. What a great idea and Fish's suggestion of wheels makes it even better. Kinda like those moving chicken coups lol. Looking forward to how they turn out.
