Uses for Buckets in the Garden

Farmers and gardeners alike usually have several buckets on hand at any given time. Buckets can be very useful in the garden. Here are a few of our favorite bucket uses:

Use a galvanized bucket to haul your tools around. This is especially helpful if you have several gardening areas or flower beds distributed around your yard.

Fill a bucket with water to water trees or other large plants that need more water than a watering can will provide.

Use your bucket to tote kitchen scraps out to your compost heap.
