Tip: How to plant on 5 gal bucket




First you need a bucket or a deep planting pot (A bucket is good because it has a handle). Then drill a couple of holes in the bottom for drainage, Now for potatoes you fill the 1st 4 or 5 inches with compost and then plant a couple of the eyes of the potatoe. Now when the green stems get to about 6 inches tall add more compost until just the tops are showing. Allow them to continue to sprout up and as they get taller repeat the back filling until you are at the top then just let them do their thing. water as needed. Now you can grow just about anything in a bucket. As far as cool weather crops go I would suggest only filling the bucket 5/8 full that way if the temps plunge unexpectently then all ya gotta do is cover the top. Now for those veggies that need to keep their toes warm you can use a grow mat and put the buckets on the Mat.
