It’s time for a progress report on the Fall crop of Dutch bucket tomatoes. As I have for a couple years now, I’m growing Big Beef. Things are off to a good start. The first blossoms are starting to set fruit and we should have tomatoes all the way up to Christmas. Looking inside the small greenhouse, the Kratky boxes are doing great. Butterhead lettuce, Romaine, and Tatsoi are looking really good. And the Pak Choi in the floating raft setup is ready to start picking. If you’ve been having trouble growing leafy vegetables, look into hydroponics. It’s a neat way to grow, and very productive.

    Love the videos. Followed your instructions last year. Problem was I was getting tomato roots clogging the outlet tube. Any tips? Would frequency of my nutrient flow or a bigger bucket make a difference (using 3 gallon)? I am using a paint strainer but the roots get through easily. Thanks.

    I live in the Philippines and rice hulls are in abundance. Do you think I could substitute for Perlite? One bag the size of a 100 lb bag of rice is only 75 cents! I am building dozens of buckets for beans, tomatoes, . thanks for the reply

    I enjoyed your channel and thank you for the information you have provided for hydroponic method. I am new and would like to try it myself. My first question is how to choose all these plastic containers and pipes. I see people use vinyl fence posts and PVC pipes. Are these materials safe for containing food or water? A lot of them were originally made for other purposes. Would you please comment on this question? Thank you! God bless, Tom
