So I went out to my plot and dug a few holes. The next day I came back and Most of the holes have a 2" diameter puddle at the bottom. The native soil is very clay-y, but I'm filling all the holes with a quality soil mix. And one of them is about halfway filled with water.

Will these puddles cause a problem with drainage?
How can I drain the hole with a lot of water?

I really just went crazy with digging, what is the approximate D x W of a 10 gallon hole?

30"wX16"deep

Its not unusual this time of year to have water stand in a hole. Its cold so the water doesnt evaporate and the soil is usually already saturated. Things will be very different in june. Its actually a good sign that the native soil retains moisture and wont drain to much.

yeah you could dig a little deeper and put some gravel at the bottom of the hole. I have also seen great results from burying a bag of soil and planting directly in that with a few holes poked in the bottom, Guerrilla Hydro

well there is a creek with flowing water next to my plot. But No watering is intriguing. Can you explain some more? Thanks for the input.:smoke:

Yo eurphoric are you canadian? cause up here our ground is still frozen... I'm also curious about this no-watering tote. At my plot it has a small stream running very close, there is lots of cat tails here could I use the totes in the cat tails potentially?
