Growing Lots of Potatoes In A Box

growing potatoes in a boxHere’s an interesting, easy way to grow lots of potatoes in 4 square feet – use a box:

The potatoes are planted inside the box, the first row of boards is installed and the dirt or mulch can now be added to cover the seed potatoes. As the plant grows, more boards and dirt will be added.

The boards at the bottom are removed to reach mature potatoes.

We’ve grown potatoes the old fashion way – the kids love to dig them up; but I may try this.

Tom’s Special Video

“Tom” is short for tomato. God, this is going to be a great video series. The following video is a sequel to (or a repeat of) this video.

And Tom (which is short for Tommyboy), watch how I prune the tomato plant in this video. Then go out and prune all your tomato plants exactly the same way. Otherwise, you’re likely to have a lot of stupid-looking tomato plants with crappy, unripened tomatoes all over the place (like my crop from last year).
