Here it is folks, a raised bed that is self watering, has it's own attched compost bin and mixes compost tea with the water.

That is very cool.
For the self watering part, this is a self watering planter we made with large plastic storage bins


clearly not as pretty, but MUCH cheaper, and you only have to fill the bottom with water every 10 days or so and though I never thought to put compost tea in the bottom WHAT a great idea.....

I have seen women looking at jewelry ads with a misty eye and one hand resting on the heart, and I only know what they're feeling because that's how I read the seed catalogs in January - Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
