I changed my carboys for wine making from plastic to glass and had two plastic carboys setting in the corner collecting dust. The top was cut from one carboy and four drainage holes drilled in the bottom. The top and bottom was cut from the second carboy and slipped just inside of the first carboy. A couple of sheet metal screws and I had myself a 24” tall transparent container.
I planted two small Kennebec potatoes along the outside wall of the container. The inside surface fogged from the temperature differential of the compost and the container but that will clear up for photos. I will keep the container at a 45 deg angle so the sprouts will grow close to the plastic until they break the surface.
I have the container covered with four layers of weed cloth for darkness and will only remove it quickly for photos. Once the sprouts break the surface, I will set the container upright on a shelf and keep the weed barrier in place. I should be able to get some close-up, hi-res photos. As usual all comments are welcome. John
