How I Water My Garden

  For a few years now my husband and I have grown a garden.  As any gardener may know you learn your own little tricks every year.  One trick I have learned is the way I water my garden.  While reading a magazine I read a tip to put buckets with holes in the bottom in your garden and fill them up with water every day.  With my time in a crunch in the morning I thought was a perfect idea, and it was.  I have a 3 1/2 ft. by 8 ft garden box and a bed that is the same size.  I have 3-5 gallon buckets in each one.  I fill them once in the morning and once at night and my garden thrives.  The buckets are berried about half in the ground.  The water goes to the roots quicker and the plants will drink what they need.

  Here are my pictures to show you how it looks.  I realize they are not the most attractive thing BUT you won't even see them after awhile because your plants will be so big.
