There are three different kinds of pumpkins; Super Freak Goosebumps, Connecticut Field and Rockafellow. We'll be cutting them from the vine before the first frost, which will be soon. Each bucket needed a couple gallons of water a day because of the hot summer we experienced, but it was worth the effort.
My bucket garden also included Early Girl tomatoes, 3 kinds of peppers, Iznik cucumbers and Shiny Boy watermelons. Everything was delicious although the 4 watermelons haven't been harvested yet. I've been tapping and listening for a dull sound, but not hearing it. The spot where the melon touches the ground is turning white/yellow, so maybe we're getting close.
The buckets are white and printed with
these words in green & gold:
Green Bay Packers
No wonder my bucket garden was a success!
