My family loves potatoes, there’s no way around it. We often get potatoes from our local farmer, but they aren’t organic. I know, I know…they are usually on the dirty dozen list each year. But, it’s a cheaper way to fill my hungry teens.
The biggest issue with growing our own has been space. Potatoes take a lot of space in the garden and you need to “hill” them, or pile on dirt as they start growing to get the best harvest. Not many of us have that kind of space, so when our friends told us of the success they have had with potatoes in buckets, we knew we had to do it too.
