Easy DIY self-watering Mason Jar for Herbs

Made this a few months ago after brainstorming some low-tech strategies (that also look cool) for growing herbs in the kitchen window with a self-watering system. Used an old piece of twine that uses capillary action to suck up water; and the soil and root matrix is housed in a tea strainer. Cost: less than $5.00. #gardeningtip #diy
