I have been priveleged to be invited over to my cousins to harvest some of their crops... He has a little over an acre planted with various veggies and fruit crops. I did learn a little about trellising the beans, which will go into practice next season, however.... in certain areas of his garden, between the plants, he had a 5 gallon bucket planted.. there were some small holes in the buckets, and he said on the dry days, he goes out and adds water to each of them, and has had a bigger crop, and the crop not dying out due to the droughts and such we had here (little ones). I may just try that and see how it works next season also.
Any comments or suggestions?
