Newbie questions here...1) How do you know when they are “done” ? ...2) IF you don’t harvest them, will they rot , continue to multiply , or ? 3) Are there varieties that just make more “seed” potatoes vs. buying the seeders every year ? Thanks !
How did your Yukon Golds do in the large barrel?
Should have mentioned about drilling holes at the bottom to prevent waterlogging when it rains too much.
What's with the ear muffs.do potatoes scream when you bury them?
looks pretty interesting, what happens when there is an unusual amount of rain ? What keeps the plants from drowning ? thanks for posting👍👍
Toxins from the plastic leaches into the potatoes. I have BPA free buckets, but I still refuse to grow food in it. Wood crates are best because they are more porous and can respirate gases. Make sure the wood is untreated, i.e., no formaldehyde’s or any other added chemical.
I didn't notice any drainage holes in the tub ?
great video Garry.
Cool video! 🇨🇦😊
Noticed there are no drainage holes? Fine in dry weather, but what happens in a downpour?
Great idea Garry. Checked Lowes website and did not see any 27 gallon barrels. Curious about the price. I guess you get 2 barrels after cutting in half? Is there a Pt 2 that shows the plants and harvest? Wonder if the wires to stabilize the feed pipe are really needed? If you carefully put soil in, wont it support the pipe or is the soil loose and does not support well?I have had great results growing okra in an old standard size damaged galvanized washtub that had holes in it. Was thinking of growing squash & cukes in some sort of container since my soil is filled with Vine Borers. Curious if 1 to 2 plants draped over the side will be able spread out or be stunted?
Garry: Great video. From one Canuck to another can i do this in a 5 gallon pail?. I dont have much room, as i live in an apartment, also can i do it indoors and can i do it all year round?. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for sharing, stay safe and keep on planting. Mark. Cambridge ont.
Hi Gary, I was only having a bit of fun, I love potatoes ..I'll be trying to grow some next spring ..I came here to get some expert advice..I'll let you know how I get on..Love from Scotland..
Great idea! Why do you trim the chits back when planting if that's where the potatoes will form? thanks!
I don't know why I'm watching this . I hate potatoes ,
Very informative,I'll give this a try.
How often do you water them etc and do you pour a pitcher of water ... a glass of water on the soil and in the tube? Can you explain the process? Thanks so much.. I would be doing this entirely indoors if possible
Thanks for the video. What about drainage? Should you put drain wholes so when it rains it doesn’t get flooded?
Nice work and thank you 👍 👏
Tried this method in Texas and got 1 potato. Don't know what I did wrong other than using an entire barrel instead of a 1/2 barrel. They got plenty of water and sun and they made plenty of greenery, just no potatoes. I'll try again this season.
