Really enjoyed the grow vertically. It was different, fun, and not as productive as I would have liked. The remaining tower containers are regular potatoes. Looking forward to how they work out. I love chatting with folks and answering questions. If you enjoy my videos, please like, comment and subscribe!

I have a hydroponic greenhouse. I grow in a system I call FAWN which is a modified hydroponic drip system. The media I grow in is aged rice hulls with parboiled rice hulls mixed. This has proven to be a great mix for me. I use Masterblend fertilizer as my nutrients to every plant grown. I’ve been pretty successful with my setup growing hydroponic tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, turnip greens, corn, potatoes, kale, carrots, beets, spinach, onions, leeks, and even okra! Everything a gardener would desire. I also dabble in other areas like growing in raised beds, growing in a ground garden, grafting, pond activities, growing fruits, and other projects on the homestead. Thank you so much for stopping in!

    You can steam the leaves…and it is so yummy!!!! or sautee. The sweet potato vines will produce roots if you bury to the ground.. the vines will continue to crawl and you can clip the tip as well and cook it..

    This was the best video I have watched in awhile. You don't often see someone post their fails but that is what happens sometimes in gardening. To tell you the truth I was just as disappointed as you were. I hope you get the issues solved and thanks again for posting this video.

    I think the problem was lack of water

    in my village,you must cut down about 20% from the brunches leaf,so that you get the fat pottatos after plant about 3 weeks
    sorry my English is bad hahaha

    A 5 gallon bucket would do you very well. I've seen a lot of videos where they are filled with beautiful tubers! Also, wait till the leaves die down before you harvest. The leaves are also edible. Keep up the good work!

    would waterline to each bucket be a better ideal?

    Hello Brent. There was no hiding your disappointment, and having several fails over the years myself, I know how it feels. That said, it's the disappointments that make the successes that much sweeter and worth chasing. I tried to grow sweet potatoes this year for the 1st time and had a fail, but I think I was doomed from the start. I think the climate in the UK is all wrong. The summer weather is not hot enough and not long enough for sweet potatoes. I know you won't give in and that you will keep chasing a good result, so good luck for next year. HGV.

    Think I will cut some 55 gallon barrels in half and make two 30 gallon potato planters. I'll start the bottom layer in soil and then do the hulling of them with decomposing woodchips…since I have so much of them lol. Hope it will work. I hear people use hay and do well.

    Not a fail as long as you learn something. I agree about the foliage. Pretty to look at while they grow.

    Dang brother I was so hoping to see a pile of taters come out of those. Hey good learning experience for sure!
    One never knows until he grows! From what it looks like maybe the bucket is to tight for them to grow in?
    Was mighty dry so that could have been part of it as well? Guess we will find out when you grow them next time out the top instead of the sides to see.
    It's never a fail my friend when trying new things. Only way to find out what works and what don't. I think you done a great job! Still can not believe how warm it is there. That 23 degrees killed all my peppers and maters that were outside so I'm done with that part for the winter.
    Greenhouse is still doing good but killing me in the cost of propane to heat it.
    Keep up the great work buddy!
