You can see exactly what is going on. Once you gain experience you will be able to grow any terrestrial plant in any water tight container of any size equipped with a SIP bubble reservoir or multiple reservoirs.

But I know I promised a tutorial today, so I took photos and have kept my word to share how to make the pallet garden. I tried to be as detailed as possible.
Making Herb and Vegetable Containers - Successful Container Gardens Vegetable gardeners in urban areas are faced with lots of problems such as lack of space, soils contaminated with heavy metals such as lead and arsenic, shade from trees and buildings, and soil-borne diseases such as fusarium, pythium, rhizoctonia, and phytophthora. If you have a passion for vegetable gardening, consider growing vegetables in containers. Vegetables and even flowers and herbs grown in containers can be placed or moved to any spot such as windows, balconies, patios, and doorsteps where there is full sun. The vegetables suitable for container gardening are the ones that require small spaces -- particularly the dwarf or determinate types, that bear fruit or other harvestable parts over a longer period of time.
