Grow potatoes in hay bales

Potato Hay Bale Garden

It’s hard not to love easy, alternative gardening ideas. What we really love about this potato garden idea is that it requires almost none of the common garden setup – not a ‘proper’ garden area or soil, not a lot of space and not even a hoe or a tiller!

Hay Bale Potato Garden

Are potatoes a regular ingredient at your dining table? This is a great way you can grow them on your own, chemical-free and as fresh as you want!

As long as you have the things listed below, you’re good to start producing your own potatoes. 🙂

It’s easy, fun for the kids and will most definitely give you abundant harvest! Just don’t forget about mice when fall arrives. They shouldn’t be a problem during the summer, but they love hay during the cold seasons, when they are looking for a cozy place to stay. They’ll especially love that you’ve provided both bed and three meals a day if you don’t harvest your potatoes before cool weather sets in!
