What a surprise to see the progress of the corn in the 444 Triple Grow Bucket! It is three times the size of the corn that is planted in the regular garden bed. The stalks in the yellow bucket are greener, larger, and much taller than the stalks in the brick lined bed. The bucket is located next to the brick lined bed where the other corn is planted and it gets the same amount of sun and water as the other. It looks a little crowded, but that is what the instructions said it could handle.
This brick lined bed was prepared with premium soil mixed with compost. The bed is watered every day via a timed watering system, so it is getting consistent watering. It’s not doing bad, but it could be doing much better. This bed has been fertilized with an organic fertilizer – Microlife Ultimate -once so far. It will get another dose in three weeks. The next product to go in the buckets are tomato plants that I ordered online. Two will go in the bucket together and the rest will go in a prepared raised bed.
