I saw a video on u-tube for growing potatoes in a garbage can. It looked like fun. And besides what did I have to lose. I am always up for new things. It turned out to be pretty easy. Right up my ally. You get a trash can and put 4 to holes in the bottom. Sorry I don't have pictures. Once again the brain wasn't working. I really need to talk to it about those afternoon naps. After you make the holes add some rocks. I just used some from my yard. Then add 4 inches of dirt. The stick was 4 inches,so I used it for a guide. after adding the dirt place 3 starter potatoes in the can then place an inch to an inch and a half of soil over it. Again no pictures. I beginning to think my brain tends to wander from home. Ok Michelle back on track. After the potatoes are covered water really well. Then bungie cord plastic over the top. Put in a place where it will get lots of sun. After the weather warms up you can take the plastic off. Once the plant has grown 7 inches cover 4 inches of the plant with soil. leaving 3 inches. When it has grown to be 7 inches tall again cover 4 inches with soil. Repeat this possess till it reaches the top of can. Then let it grow. When the leaves turn brown and fall over,just dump the can over to get the potatoes. You should get 50 to 60 pound of potatoes.
