Potato Update

With all of the rain last week, the potatoes have grown an insane amount!! I have had to add soil and I still need to add some more… Here is the progress so far.

These are the potatoes before I added the additional soil.

I am not sure why the middle box has not grown very much. It is a different variety than the other two, so I am hoping that is the reason.

These are the potatoes after the additional soil.

I split the last of the soil that I had available between the two boxes that needed it and I plant to pick up some more to continue filling it. They still have enough growth that I could add another two to three inches on top of the three to four I already added. They are growing like crazy! Hopefully the middle box picks up soon….

Get your Head in the Garden,

  1. Great way to grow potatoes. Too late this year but I feel a new technique coming on for next year. Thanks.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed. I’ve also seen in done in laundry baskets and other containers. I just prefer the cardboard box because I can put in the compost afterwards, minus the tape…

  2. Great post! I haven’t got my potatoes planted yet. Hopefully this week…
