Might not be enough volume in the buckets to do it with okra or many other reasons.
Hard to tell from this far away.
But they do have to have a drain hole, whether you use it or not is up to the amount of water (if any water) in the container.

Salt,
In your words.
Gardening has helped me tremendously even through the years of RKN and Fusarium Wilt 3. It has kept me busy, and this year's new-to-me container gardening has kept me busy learning. This garden is/are just baby steps.
I can only give you words on a page. But I feel that my garden is not only an outlet for my mind to explore, but a way to put those thoughts to work. I enjoy a challange. Container gardening for me has been a rollercoaster. It can make your buttcheeks tight, but when you get off the ride. It's a whole new world. I feel we will all fail or at least stumble. But if we continue, we'll all learn and be a better person for it.
Aloha & Best wishes,
Tom

Aloha

My mind is saying, "Yes, do it." My body is saying, "No @#$% - not yet" ...I'll see the doctor tomorrow.

I didn't want to show pictures until I had the garden fully put together, but my body isn't agreeing. The first picture is of the super hybrids grown in infected ground. What looks like weeds are dwarf French marigolds.

The second and third picture are of the container gardens.

Looks great. Nothing to be ashamed of there. Marigolds are great for pests and vermin too. Good choice. Have a good one.
