    Food for thought ur buckets are not good for growing…The sun and water will absolutely cause the plastic to leach contaminants from that in your roots of all ur food!

    Hi-Just viewed your video and it was great.  I use the 5 gallons buckets also.  Can you please tell me what did you use to hang your buckets on the fence.  Thank you kindly.

    Thanks for the idea with the buckets and fence.
    Great and inexpensive way to keep my dog and garden in the same area.

    There is definite ways to grow squash this way but it is a little more challenging because of the weight of the fruit. I typically use twine to trellis it down as it grows so it can support the weight of itself. I'll post a video soon to show you what I mean. Sorry it took so long to respond… I moved and had to start everything all over again.

    I want to do start a bucket garden do you have any tips for me. Every time we have tried squash it strangles all the other plants around it. How do you grow them in buckets. I am willing to try it. I love veggies!

    The squash were planted in the buckets and have holes drilled in the bottom for drainage. I didn't grow them upside down because the end up being to heavy and pull themselves out.

    You absolutely can do that but you will need some root hormone gel to put on the cutting. After you apply the gel you just stick it in water until the roots start forming. Then you transplant that to some soft potting soil to get the roots established. Then you can plant it in the ground. Good Luck!!

    Do you have your squash planted in the buckets have water in the bottom of the buckets? Are they partially hydroponic, or just have holes in the bottom of the 5 gal. buckets?

    When you take off the suckers, do you plant those as well? I saw a video where they did get starts that way.

    I have a question. What do you use to hang your buckets. These are quiet heavy so need good hanger.

    Your cucumbers in the ground needs alot more water…. Cucumber itself at flower can be 2 inches long in the morning and by 6pm tripple in size…

    Key is LOTS OF WATER!! and Urea.
