What is that gizmo?

Post  boffer on 3/25/2010, 6:16 pm

The sfg picture at the top of the page, has a gizmo under the word 'do'.

Being the low tech gardener that I am, I don't have a clue what it is used for.

Anybody know?

I guess that's a tomato plant. What's the purpose of a tomato tray in a sfg?

I asked about them in a thread the other day... http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/general-sfg-talk-f5/tomato-trays-t578.htm?highlight=tomato+tray

And here's a link to them http://squarefootgardening.mybisi.com/product/tomato-trays-pack-of-3

The other ones I've seen were red and supposedly the red did some magic voodoo on them. No clue though, never used any.

From the link above which links to the trays in the SFG store.

Tomato watering tray increases tomato
harvests by 40% or more.

Protects all vine crops against droughts and brings earlier, tastier
harvests.

So I assume it holds water to slow water you tomatoes or maybe it holds the moisture in......just a guess.
