why bother putting them in the bags and not put them into the pool?  or is the pool to catch water? 

did you do this?  how are they coming along?

Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below

That's my video and I just planted on the 23rd. The pool holds the water and the bags are self wicking so no need to water everyday. We'll see if it works...

Looks great! Put a couple bean seeds in each bag with the corn. They're great nitrogen fixers! Just an idea....  8)
