Clay pots for irrigation

Q. I am interested in your clay pot experience. I am in Albuquerque and have been researching and using the buried pots for over a year now. I’m curious as to what size/type of pot you used and how you are filling them. Also what type of plants did you decide to use near them?

Any findings are really helpful as I compile uses and experiences. Thank you! Bridgit

A. We picked up some unglazed pots from a local garden center. We fill them up with water and check them every couple days to see if they need re-filling. We planted an assortment of veggies and herbs. There are a few pictures on our photo gallery starting with this one at http://dervaesinstitute.org/photogallery/Yard/2006/backyard/slides/rockbed-1.html (click “next slide” for the succession of photos)
