Remember these??? Well -they are growing along happily - producing prodigious amounts of spinach and lettuce -and now nurturing a few tomato plants and a zucchini. Oh and some peas.
I have been getting nightly harvests like this - and more - for the past week. So great to make a weekend sandwich and go out and pull fresh greens to put on it. Mmmmmmmmm........
So this weekend, Hubby added FIVE buckets to the system. Same concept - just smaller.. I did not get an "after" picture of these - my hands were a little dirty - but there are now tomato plants in each of these. And FOUR more buckets waiting to be filled (ran out of soil) - an eggplant, some squash, and some carrot seeds will round those out.
The raised beds are planted and seem to be doing well - except that the local bunnies like to eat my baby tomatoes. We've lost 6 - but luckily I had enough seedlings to replace them (plus a few plants from my generous neighbor!).
We even had an (unwanted but rare) rhubarb blossom.
