Fixed! And you know it's not a button, it's a line in your profile settings, right? If you don't know this, read back earlier in this thread, there are pictures...
Have a great day!

Bob said The hard part was finding the correct wicking material. I tried about eight different materials and came up with this
I find this idea fascinating. The title sort of threw me since I don't know what an Evapotranspiration Monitor is.
Googling this was no help.
I have all the materials to make this. Dog bowl, terra cotta pot.
Here is what I don't understand: What is the wicking material? Sand, dirt, potting soil?
Do I fill both pots with soil and then fill with water? How much soil and how much water?
I find sticking my finger in the soil useless to monitor when I need to water as it is always dry except when I flood the garden bed.

That goes part way to answering the question that I have. I was wondering if you use the "green matter" from your infused vinegar jars or just the vinegar. I'm also wondering how tightly you back the herb in the jars. Is it a matter of cramming in as much as will fit, or loosely filling the jar, or... ?

So are you saying that you give the dill a water bath and THEN store in vinegar?
