Hello Green thumb,

That was a very intresting post on growing potatoes in a sack. How do provide for the drainage?

This is a new variation on a trick I've used...

We put an old tire on the ground... when the plant gets tall, stack another tire on it, then fill that.

Either of these methods make for very convienent harvesting, don't they?

Congrats Green thumb, it is great when we adopt ideas from other garden bloggers and try them. This will give other inspiration to try this method of growing potatoes. Kudos to you!

sweet that you had success with the flour sacks! :)

Oh the taste of freshly harvested potatoes simply cannot compare to the months old imported stuff...

Great way to grow fresh potatoes. I have seen some sites, like yours, that recommend these bags instead of pots.
