Container Gardens Progress Report
These beans are growing like crazy! They are blooming great! These are an Italian pole bean. The container is a plastic basket, with holes drilled in the bottom. This is working great! It does need almost daily water though. I can't reach the top growth now!
Peppers! Before barrels, I could never get them to bear. I can't beleive they are almost ripe. This is great! I had garlic plants in this barrel too. It was the largest garlic I've grown.
More peppers. Cool! The onions are spring bunching onions. I planted the seeds in this barrel just to see what would happen.
