I think that is why this project really caught my eye. At first glance it really seems impossible that all those pots don't just fall over. Ha! In your face Sir Issac, observe anti-gravity at play! (....insert evil scientist laugh here...)
SPOILER ALERT: if you check out this great tutorial at Homestories A to Z it may ruin the magic for you just a bit.
So I borrowed the idea to make my own stacking herb garden but I wasn't done with my experiment just yet. I also wanted to mess with Einstein and see if I could make my pots travel back in time. But finding a way to get my pots to travel beyond the speed of light was going to be difficult...until I came across this tutorial from At the Picket Fence.
Apparently the Picket Fence girls paid attention in science class because they have discovered a way transport pots back 50 years and return them to the present in only about 20 minutes. I think Albert E. himself would be astonished at this new technology!
I just added a few simple stencils before I sent these pots on their travels. Then I carefully stacked them in an anti-gravity fashion and planted my herbs.
Just one more law of physics to test - "FOR EVERY ACTION THERE IS AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION." I also didn't do so well in botany, plant morphology or any of those green sciences. After I planted these herbs I completely forgot about them, as in no water, no fertilizer, no talking to them etc.
Until I decided to make some fresh marinara sauce and suddenly remembered there might be some basil out in the yard. I was astonished to see that my herbs had given me an opposite and equal reaction. They were alive and thriving!
Well maybe Physics 101 was a long time ago for me but I think I deserve some extra credit for this project, don't ya think??
Thanks for tuning in!
