set up and watering
« on: May 11, 2021, 03:27:51 pm »
I've just set up my new EB system and planted my two tomatoes.  I'm concerned about the amount of water I had to put in to fill up to the overflow drain.  I feel like I'm drowning my tomatoes!  I couldn't use quite all of the 2 cf of potting soil.  Have I done something wrong???

You can't over fill the EB. Is the mix mounded a little higher than the top efge?
Why Google, when you have me?

Thanks. Yes, it is mounded at least 5", as high as I could get it without falling out.  It's just such a unique new way of gardening.  I'm really excited to see how things turn out!
