|Zucchini on June 3, 2015. The Zucchini is able to grow rapidly because of the consistent water and temperature environment provided to it by the Waterboxx.|

We started getting full size Zucchini in late June. We were happy with how early we could begin harvesting because we did need to plant the zucchini outdoors. We did add 2 small Jobe's organic fertilizer spikes to the soil around the Zucchini on July 1.
|A full sized Zucchini in late June. We haven't watered this plant at all or added any water manually to the Waterboxx, but the Waterboxx remains full.|
We have harvested 28 Zucchinis this year (about one every 2 days since late June)! You can buy the Groasis Waterboxx here. We are growing several other plants with the Waterboxx, a complete list is available here.
If you would like to learn how to grow plants without watering with the Waterboxx, the best resource is the book The Waterboxx Gardener: How to Mimic Nature, Stop Watering, and Start Enjoying Your Garden available here on Amazon.com.
