Garden Update- Building More Grow BucketsPosted: March 24, 2012
Most of the plants I started under grow lights I got into grow buckets today. I had to build 6 new ones this week.
From bottom of pic on left; an orange tree, Roma tomatoes, strawberries, cherry tomatoes. Off to left; Malabar spinach, then Swiss chard, beets, more Swiss chard, and in blue barrel is sweet potatoes.
So this week I will get more 5 gallon buckets and plant the cucumbers, kale, larger cukes, more Malabar spinach and spinach.
Malabar spinach is one of the most beautiful plants I’ve grown. It grows in a spiral and twists around the supports. The berries that came off of it last year sprout really easy so I have years worth of plants!
Here last years plant; I only got one, I ordered it from Neem Tree Farm. This is where I get Neem Powder for brushing my teeth.
