The Mobile Mini-Farm is the evolution of gardenistas throughout the suburban (and urban) landscape. People tend to have small yards and are very business. They typically love to get outdoors and get their hands dirty, but like low-maintenance gardens. Part of the planters job is to reduce weeds, which lowers the maintenance you need to perform on your yard. These planters I'm installing today are equipped with self-watering systems, also known as SIPs. The irrigation system is below the dirt, and can easily be filled with a normal yard hose. The underground system puts the water right where the roots want it most. This simple adaptation reduces the need to water your plants by a factor of 90℅. In some case, people don't water their mini-farms for 2 weeks in the hottest time of the summer, and still get lush, happy plants.
So that's what's in my truck today....or at least, this morning. The day is still young.
