I’ll try to remember to post an update photo later, but even after being away in Los Angeles this week, the earth box – checked upon my return – seems to have kept a constant level of moisture available to the two tomato plants and the zucchini. The plants still look quite healthy and are showing new growth, after being transplanted eight days ago.
The zukes are actually budding already! The tomatoes of course are quite tropical so still can’t be happy with the cool (cold!) nights but at least now they have a good chance of not drying out in the sun / wind of the rooftop.
