I want to have some tomato plants this year and don't have time at the new house to get some beds or a whole garden together.
For those that do them in buckets, will you share with me some do's and don't's

Water every day, gets hotter water twice a day. Better boys do good in buckets, others not so much.


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

I'm trying the Earth Buckets this year. I have three set up. If I can find some cheap buckets, I will make some more. Everything I've read on them says it should retain water /moisture very well.

I tried some maters in buckets once and even one of those stupid hanging things that were the rage at one time. I found I couldn’t keep them watered well enough. You missed one day, they dried out. Bad. Forget about it if you’re gone 3-4 days on a trip.

I do maters in tires and it works well believe it or not. Just keep adding ties and dirt. Took it up to 4 and 5 tires. Then when ripe just remove tires and push over dirt.

I will be looking into getting this system going next year.
May be the solution to your problem AC

I have my buckets in a location where they get sunlight from daybreak until about 2:00 and shade after that to hopefully keep the hottest afternoon sun from drying out my roots too bad.

This photo shows when I planted the first 4 buckets on the bottom and a week or so later in the top

This photo shows the other 2 buckets I got going.

If you want to get fancy you can get some small diamater polypro hose and drip emitters for each bucket plant. Lay the hose by the plants and use a punch to connect the emitters to the hose and stick the emitters in the buckets. It will also keep them alive if you have to go away for a day or two. Irrigation mart (google it) in Louisiana have all the supplies. If you go this route make sure you get the pressure reducing parts because normal hose pressure will rip apart a system that small.

I get some kind of crazy long legged stink bug on my tomatoes. They can Tony Montana sevens dust! I have to pull them off by hand.

Years ago the interstate contractor was putting some new 8' hog wire fence up and they had scrap end pieces they said I could have. I made some 8' high cages for my Better Boy maters in 5 gallon buckets. I used cow manure/dirt out of the catch pen to put the plants in. Some of them came out of the top of the wire and hung down another foot or so.

Yep the stink bugs are a PITA! They will introduce some kinda bacteria or yeast into the tomatoes n they will get splotchy yellow kinda like blight. Haven’t found a safe pesticide to kill them yet.


Message me if you hunt Lowndes or Autauga WMA's.
