Earlier this year I decided to try to grow spuds in a bag because I don’t have enough space for a potato patch but I do love new season potatoes with butter and parsley. I had been told that potatoes will grow anywhere and so I embarked on an experiment using the bags sold in hardware stores for green waste. I cut a few holes in the bottom, put in some green waste, some straw and some pink eye seed potatoes and waited.
Here they are looking healthy and about to flower. At the time it was suggested it would be a great idea for people renting because they could take their potatoes with them and now it appears they certainly could do so. The proof will be in the harvesting when I see whether all the green flourish on top actually translates into a pot of potatoes.
