Looks good. I think containing the growing media is a good idea. More control and helps keep the plant food in the root zone.

Potatoes not so good Faye :cry: , I put them too low in the wicking bed by mistake and they were constantly sitting in very moist soil so they turned to mush.

I think wicking beds may not be the best place for spuds for this reason, I will try growing them under a pile of hay next year to see how they go. If successful I can just move the pile of hay to a new section of the yard each year to avoid potato disease.

They are even bigger now but not really forming tight heads, if they don't soon I will have to harvest and use as is lest they go to seed.

They did get just a little bit of frost burn.
