Behind the design


Getting a small amount of water to drip consistently is surprisingly hard! The "aha!" moment was leaving the pushpins in the tubing. That made it easy to adjust the size of the drip hole.

He had so much fun, he particularly loved watching the soil 'grow'. It all looks wonderful, and I've helped him carefully place the entire contraption under one of our grow lights. Hopefully the seeds pop! If they do, this will have been the best of all the crates we've ever had.

The project is good for the most part but the drips fail from time to time.
