I've got a bumper crop in the ground at the moment. Planted them a few months back when it looked like it might rain. Was lucky and got a bit of rain which helped them get a start. I got lazy and never thinned them at all. Am lucky though that a lot of them have gotten big, while the ones in between have just stayed a bit smaller. Starting to harvest and eat them now :-). I would never bother in AP I've gotta say - but then I have soil as an option which some do not.

File comment: Ok, these are from the (well I can't really say dirt as it was more a lasagna garden) ground garden. I'm still working on getting the AP system going.

Outback - I am of the opinion that root crops are not worth bothering with in AP. Are no god in the media we tend to use most. Some are playing with perlite and vermiculite (must get update on how F&F is going), but for me I will grow the potatoes, carrots, garlic, sweet potatoes, beetroot etc etc in the soil garden whioch will have plenty of room without all the AP grown crops in it.

Got any pics Steve? I just think that we are going to get more bang for buck with other plants that are more suited and as I said above, I still intend to do some dirt gardenning, so may as well grow roots where they work best. As I also said above, some do not have the luxury of being able to grow in dirt as well because of climate or city living or whatever.

VB, apparently not. must not have taken any pics. i harvested half of them quite small and steamed the leaves adn the others i let go to a medium sort of size.

probably wouldn't bother with carrots though. i feel that the beetrott was the best value for space for the root crops

I've heard that potatoes and sweet potatoes can be growing in half barrels using drip in Hydroponics so I would guess that they would work in AP too but one would want to leave a little extra room in the barrel so that as the tubers grow they don't push your media up out of the barrel. Probably easier with the lighter sort of media like perlite. I think I will try sand with sweet potatoes though.

Hay Jaymie, how would you describe the sand you used in your barrels? Really coarse, medium or fine? As I am digging out there, my sand seems a bit fine for this purpose, I'm hoping I find a coarse layer further down.

It is a medium coarse mix of sand.
The thought of swwet Potatoes in sand has crossed my mind also , and, I don't really like carrots all that much ;)
