wicking water in large container
Could someone please explain the idea of wicking water upward through a container using cord/string?
My idea is to use 2-5gal. buckets w/lids as reservoirs centered in a 55 gal. plastic barrel. The barrel will be lined with burlap after cutting holes in the sides to plant strawberries.
I know this looks rough but I'm new to using computers. The family says I'm techno-challenged LOL. I did this sketch in paint but I hope you can get the idea.
