Brown Thumb

Standard

I don’t remember talking about my bucket garden last year. I took some 5 gallon buckets, drilled holes for drainage, mixed soil and manure, and planted both seeds and young plants. I watered and weeded all summer long, and got a small bounty.

Yeah, that’s it. A small pepper. We joke about making a stuffed pepper, and we all could have a nibble.

So I cleaned out the buckets, and I have some green stuff growing:

I guess I’ll wait and see what happens! The funny thing is that last year, brennen had a cabbage he planted at school. So we added it to the bucket garden, and almost a year later we have a plant!!!

Giggle!

So the plans are to have a raised bed this year. I think it’s going to be 18×9 feet. I hope it works! Here’s the “plot”
