Herb Garden Experiment

As you can see, my herb garden has a variety of containers now.  (This is really not about frugality, unless I count my time as worth pennies an hour--this is about needing green stuff around and playing in the dirt even though it's winter.)

I’m doing a little experiment with the first three containers.  Which is better: self-watering, water-only, or water and soil?  Granted, I don’t have a large enough sample size to draw a definitive conclusion, but I await the results with interest nonetheless.  Plus I'm curious to see if the deeper soil of the fifth pot from the left makes a difference.

For instructions on making the self-watering one, see this blog post.
