    Don’t you ever just want to try something new to see if it’ll work?!?

    Hey, as I said, my wife showed me some stuff on pinterest, and I decided to try something different. If it works for me, I learned something new, but if it doesn’t, a failure won’t be life altering.

    Got it completely fenced yesterday and more plants in the ground.
    The black soil I’m planting in is from a spot where I fed hay 4 years ago.

    I have a friend that plants his potatoes in 5 gallon buckets. When it's time to harvest, he just dumps the buckets on a tarp. Gets the taters and puts the dirt back in the buckets. Easier than digging everything up!

    Can also grow onions, carrots, radishes, lettuce, and herbs in lengths of guttering that is attached to a fence. No weeds. No bending over to harvest. Works really well!


    Happy growing!

    I've seen hanging baskets that look like 5 gallon buckets with a small hole in the bottom where the plant (tomatoes mostly, IIRC) sticks out. It's watered from the open top.

    Strawberries work good like this as well. Drill holes in the bottom for drainage. Can be moved into the garage during winter to prevent repeated freeze and thawing of the crown which is what kills them.

    So far, I’ve got 18 tomato plants, 6 cherry tomato plants, 4 cucumber plants with 4 more germinating, and 6 crooked neck squash.
    My wife saw this on FB for potatoes, and I may buy a couple or three to try.:anyone:
