New row coming along.

Second row of hydro buckets is coming along just find. Since I am try my hand at growing watermelon, which is going to require a lot of water. I will need to get a larger nutrient tank for this row.

Vertical strawberry grower

Purchased 30 strawberry plants that will be going into my vertical grow garden next month (May). Started setting up the vertical garden, but still need to get a nutrient tank for it. Also can't decide what to use for as growing medium.

Adding More Hydro Buckets

My three test hydro buckets did so well last season, that I am adding more this season. As you see from the two pictures. First I lower the height the buckets by 8 inches or one concrete block. The nutrient tank was sunk into the ground with only 3 inches sticking above ground. Three more buckets were added to orginal three. These six buckets will be for tomatoes plants. Plus I start work on adding a second row of buckets.
