Very nice! A lot of work! Are they watered from the top and bottom also?

Nice! Looks like a friendly gathering of happy plants. They should be happy, as they appear to be very well taken care of.

What kind of plants are we looking at here?

Quite a setup! We think alike, though I am working at a much smaller scale.

I have a drip irrigation from the top. Probably
about once a week I add some diluted Miracle Gro to the bottom.
I have 30 plus buckets. I have cucumbers, cantaloupe,
watermelon, 3 varieties of tomatoes, macaroons,
bell peppers, zucchini, banana peppers. I even have
a bucket of corn. I read another post that said
they didn't think it was possible to grow corn, so I had to try it.

Macaroons? What's that, if I may ask? I googled, but all I got was cookies, LOL!

Sorry I messed that name up badly!
I guess I spelled it that way bc that is
how my wife pronounces it?
It should be giant marconi pepper.
They are delicious and very productive.
I have found them at Wal-Mart and Lowes
this year. They do awesome in containers.
Once they start growing they take up a
tremendous amount of water. So if growing
In a container be prepared to water. The taste is
similar to a bell pepper, but with a slight kick but not
Spicy at all. I like putting them on sandwiches.
Beats the heck out of Sub-way.
