Just a quick update on where my bucket garden is at:
- I recently replanted the lettuce and spinach buckets (the three you can see in the center that have nothing green in them) for a late-summer or fall harvest.
- The peppers are growing, but I think they never fully recovered from the early July heat because they each have only one pepper each.
- The strawberries have been doing the best out of everything I planted this year. Though we’ve only had a handful of strawberries at a time, they have been producing consistently throughout the summer.
- The cherry tomato has been doing well, though it was definitely slowed down. I’ve eaten two delicious tomatoes from it already, and you can see there are a few more coming on, but I have high hopes that the current flowers will convert into fruit too.
How has your garden been this summer? Are you wading through your zucchini? Or, like me, are you just happy to have anything fresh, even if it is a measly yield?
