This is now:
This gardening thing really works, people.
If you buy plain Spagnum Peat Moss and a bag of Perlite instead of the fancy pre-mixed stuff, it's much, much less expensive. We got it down to less than three dollars per global bucket.
After a few weeks of seeing our tomato plant grow, we decided to plant a few more buckets. And then a few more. And then a few more. I planted two more yellow squash plants today. Currently, we have ten global buckets, one tomato plant in a normal bucket full of backyard dirt (which is doing well) and one small normal bucket full of special dirt and herb seeds. We also have a garden that we actually planted in the ground in our backyard. Crazy, I know, but we are forward thinkers in this household.
We have Cauliflower in a Global Bucket:
and potatoes in the ground. The potatoes are doing amazingly well. I am thrilled for our potatoes.
Our row of onions:
Baby tomatoes that will one day grow into a my tomato basil soup.
Toddler tomatoes growing on our tomato plant-in-a-normal-bucket.
We also planted an avocado tree (not in a bucket) and will plant a few more trees in a few more days. I'm hoping to get some raspberry bushes in this year, but we'll see. It's a work in progress.
