Ever wanted to get the most out of your potatoes, but the space to grow them was limited? While our garden space has almost doubled, I still find myself wishing I had more area to grow in, and so I decided to try building potato towers this year.
There are a few different styles of potato tower out there, but I went with a chicken wire frame with straw inside. It was very easy to set up, and thus far the potatoes seem to be flourishing. Since the normal “trench” method of growing potatoes is a particularly spacious proposition, this experiment is ending up saving an abundance of room for more tomatoes, eggplants, carrots, and all the other goodies of the vegetable garden.
