Your bucket gardens are depending on you for all of their nourishment. Make sure to give them a dose of good organic fertilizer every 3 weeks. Put it around the base of the plants and then mix it in. You can then put some compost on top for added nutrients and moisture control if you like. Remember to keep it watered but not soaking wet. If you have a bucket garden with squash in it refer to May’s issue of The Sprout to fight off Squash Vine Borers and Squash Bugs.
