Since we don't have a lot of space for a garden in our yard, we decided to do a bucket garden on our deck. I read a lot about the Earthbox garden kits you can buy, but honestly, I wasn't ready to pay $55 for one or more. We just couldn't justify that amount of money for some produce. So off I went online to search for alternatives and found a great website to make your own for hardly anything.
Here are a few pictures of our tomatoes growing, we should be able to harvest close to 60 tomatoes. We have had 3 batches of green beans so far and they just keep growing. Our lettuce has slowed down, but that has to do with the fact that they are sharing the same space as the green beans and are not getting enough sun. So exited to see and taste our bucket garden success for first time gardeners!
