Hey guys,
Rob from Bunbury.

Im guessing I need to post here before I can post on other peoples topic?

I have an aquaponics setup which consists of a 1000L tank with trout and perch, a 500L BYAP growbed and have just finished making a close to 1000L floating raft system.

I only have a small backyard so am looking at ways to grow the most in a small space.

Looking at growing tomatoes and chillies in 25L wicking buckets.
I am currently setting up some half blue barrels as wicking pots also.

Welcome Rob, have you looked at the Dutch Bucket system? Cheers

Is that similar to a Dutch oven system?

Haha I am quite farmiliar with the Dutch Oven :D

Is the Dutch bucket one inside another with a pot linking the 2 to wick water from the bottom one?
I have just made one of these getting ready for tomatoes and chillies.

I've had success with smaller tomato plants and chillies but larger tomato plants in wicking buckets seem to dry out in the heat of summer. I changed to wicking crates and barrels for more dirt.
