Being a farm girl from Idaho, I knew when I decided to plant my very first garden this year there was no was I'd consider it a real garden without potatoes  Grin.  So...here is my version of container gardening for potatoes. 



So far, so good.  The lack of sunshine and the inches upon inches of rain have slowed them down a bit, but overall, hasn't seemed to faze them too terribly much.  Thanks for looking!

Oops...sorry 'bout that.  They are red potatoes growing in 4 gallon buckets that I picked up from the local bakery (donut glaze buckets Grin)  I figured they'd need all the "sweet" love they could get here in Alaska......

I did some a while back in straw.  But they never flowered!   Cry  I left the bin, and they sprouted again the following year, but still no potato love.  Now I'm afraid to dig into the bin to dee what IS living in there  Grin

I'm not a great gardener right now.... maybe after we get our door fixed and I can get out there more!!

I never would have thought that you could grow potatoes in buckets. Interesting this. So how did it turn out? Did you get a nice crop? We're nearing the end of the growing season here so I might imagine that you are as well.
