Got some crabgrass poking it's way through the stone and fabric, but will have to spray with some total kill once and a while to keep it clean. Won't effect the buckets, really like planting this way
. This fall, will make up 15 more which will get the total up to about 40 buckets, then make an auto watering system for next year.
Some new pics of the tomato plants getting big no disease, very healthy. We've been getting rain almost everyday, T-storms are out of control this year. Even a tornado 10 mile north of me...unbelievable for NH. My neighbors in-ground garden isn't doing squat and lots of drowned plants. My buckets are happy and so is the neighbor, we share
Tore out the old squash and cuks and replanted last week. Those did fantastic, but were petering out. Figure we can be picking a new batch again in 6 weeks.
I like the bucket system
