Speaking of buckets, I wanted to show you how the broccoli are doing in the swc's. For any new readers of my blog, these plants are part of a study for Auburn University - to show the progress of this particular veggie being grown in a swc. Before my tutorial can be made into an Alabama publication, it has to be validated with a documented study. For the record, these cat litter buckets have a capacity of 4 gallons of growing medium. (Yep, I measured it)
Also, I wanted to show you the current growth of the onions that were planted earlier. They're doing very well, and I expect to get pretty large bulb onions from them in early May. Hopefully, no onion maggots will show up later....That would be a bummer!
Lastly, the mini - greenhouse construction isn't going as expected. The framework is complete, but some of my electronic components and other accessories haven't arrived yet. Oh well...they'll show up in a few more days - I'm sure. Man, let me tell ya - these are gonna be some freaky greenhouses! Ha! Since they will be in plain view from the road, I can already hear the passersby. Maybe something like "Dude...look at what that crackhead put in his garden!" Hehe. Believe me...there's a real good reason for the shape/design - as I always emphasize on functionality before appearance.
Oh! Me and the boys opened a jar of the homemade salsa the other day, and it was yummy!
Take care, and happy gardening!
