Growing Potatoes


I decided to try a new way of growing my potatoes this year. This is a good idea esp. if you’re limited on space. Wrap chicken wire around to make a circle, put sticks (or whatever you wish) through sides and into ground to stabalize it. Pack some hay around sides (to keep dirt from falling out) and fill with dirt, layering potatoes and hay(just on sides) as you go. Snip holes randomly throughout the sides for the shoots to grow through, push hay to the side just in hole you cut open.


I was honestly suprised at how good the turnout was this year. I will certainly do it again next season, just add a few more(now that I know it works good).
