A Foody is a solution to two big problems for those of us who love to garden: how do you keep a productive garden all year long? And how do you garden when you don’t have space? The Foody is a clean, elegant hydroponic system that brings your garden indoors or onto your deck, producing fresh herbs, greens and vegetables no matter the season. Video Rating: / 5 Attempted a new grow method with potatoes–growing vertically in containers stacked on top of each other. I had some interesting results and a new inspiration that led to a slight modification in technique. So, while this reveal isn’t as successful as I’d planned, it has led to something I expect to be successful and very space-saving. My name is Brent and I live in central Arkansas. Love to garden and dabble in hydroponics–Drip Systems, Deep Water Culture Systems, Self Watering Containers, & modified Rain Gutter Grow Systems in the greenhouse. A big part of it is experimentation. I would love to hear from you. Join the conversation and share who you are here with me!

    I would guess that you could get better yields by beginning the potato starts in the center of the pots and as they grow add medium. Could start with one pot, add a few starts, when they grow add more medium and repeat till the first pot is full. Then put a bottomless pot on top of it and repeat. Keep going till the potato stops growing and you might have potatoes all up the column of pots. Might be an issue with sunlight though.

    Re: l have been thinking about this and the potato seed grows producing new spuds on the stem which we would normally bury, so thinking about it, it is probably impossible to get a good crop in my personal opinion. What are your thoughts. ?

    I saw a recent video on how determinate and indeterminate potatoes grow. Jeff Sullivan sent me the link. It's enlightening. I don't know how exact that video is, but I tend to believe most of it. Dan fills his pots heavily and I'm hoping to replicate him here in the states. I think potatoes produce below the soil at the point they sprout through the soil. Additionally, if conditions are ripe, they push each other up so that those lower can grow bigger. So, with that belief in mind, I feel that one of my pots should completely fill ideally. Take a look at the video I'm about to put up and comment on it about what you think will happen too.

    Nice taters. Sounds like they inspired a possibly better idea.

    Hi Brent,
    Do you use Google SketchUp? Why so much media (rice hulls) in the wheel barrow? Would it not be easier to sift through and pull out potatoes with less dirt in the barrow? Odd how one bucket had large and many potatoes. What made that bucket so special? Cheers,
    Bill

    Hello Brent. If at first you don't succeed. HGV

    And bucket #4 is the winner!! Agree on disappointment, After the last tater video you did of the almost dead tater plants that had lots of taters I was expecting for a tater avalanche to come rolling out of these. I have no doubt at all that you will master this in no time! Thanks for sharing Bro!

    So was it next to lowest man on the totem pole that had the best crop & size? Maybe too hot and dry towards the top? the last bucket looked like it wasn't done growing…looked too pale green(maybe didn't get enough light?) Maybe grow something different in upper buckets(like peas, cabbage or beans, since they are good companions to potatoes) and reserve 2nd & 3rd from bottom for potatoes?

    It's so great that you do these experiments, Brent! Do you guys have to buy much vegetable produce at the grocery store, or are you pretty much covered? Do you ever think about growing fruit trees? Have you ever heard of Permaculture Food Forests? Lol lots of questions. Hehe

  • FesterWerks 1 year ago

    I was so sad after the first bucket. Couple bright spots though. Any idea why you might have gotten such nice potatoes from the one bucket? "Brent does the experiments, so you don't have to!"
