Since my backyard vegetable garden died, I needed to clean it up as the first step for getting ready for the spring season.
The first step was to breakdown the self-watering containers. Here is how I did that in my Brooklyn garden:
These steps might seem easy, but it resulted in a mess. I’m likely going to change the way that I made them to make the breakdown easier.
If you were just going to dump everything or making them for one time usage, it wouldn’t be a problem. I am composting the contents and reusing the soil, so that made it much more difficult and messy.
The water and wet soil was getting everywhere and made for an unpleasant cold and windy day.
Do you think there would’ve been an easier way for me to break these down?
