Backyard Bucket Garden and Rain Harvesting System

We will have a lot from the Co Op Garden so
I didn't plant that much in our Backyard Bucket Garden this year.
But I did want to try my hand at growing some Spinach

And some Grape Tomato's
Jelly Bean is the name , a Family favorite!

And here we have this year's Rain Harvesting System.
Last Year, we just had a plastic bucket under the gutter Matt raised for me .
This year I got a galvanized trough at Tractor Supply!

HI there! Im so glad that you stopped by. I wish I had some of your gardening skills. I do love planting flowers in the spring.

Bucket Gardens do have their advantages. Portable, easier
to keep the bunnies out and they allow us to recycle those old buckets.

Tacky, yes, but they are easy, free and grow great crops.

I created a hanging bucket garden planter for $1.50 and
made a quick PDF book on my process steps with pictures if interested.
