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!
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!
