Our lease is up in august. I want a garden. So, I had to come up with a solution. I don't to plant a garden and then move before I can even pick anything. I am going to attempt a "bucket garden" My goal for the week is to somehow acquire 12-15 5 gallon buckets and plan exactly what to plant in each. I am also trying to find cheap canning equipment so that I can preserve some of the things that we grow for use in the winter. I was told that walmart and hyvee give away 5 gallon buckets that they use for icing. I'm going to give them a try. Hope I get lucky :) It would save me quite a bit of money to find free buckets instead of having to buy them for 3 or 5$ a piece. I have been doing some research on the subject and hopefully will have a pretty good little garden growing soon. I haven't tried to grow anything successfully in a long time so it should be interesting. If I remember to water my plants we should be ok. I have a black thumb though when it comes to house plants :( wish me luck!
