Love living frugally!! I have planted my first try at potatoes, I've planted them in old feed sacs theya re really growing and I am excited!! It didn't cost a lot, used the potatoes that were old and had grown out. as the plants grow up i unroll the bags and add hay and soil!!! should get several pounds!!
I've heard of this before and I'd like to try it. I don't have good soil here and don't exactly have a green thumb; I'm quite the novice in gardening. Will you illustrate (step-by-step) how to grow them in feed bags? How much soil? Open bag? Potatoes in the soil? How far down? (see, novice) Thanks in advance!
I sure hope you all have better results then we did. We plant hundreds of potatoes in our garden, but bought to of those bags for the fun of it. We used the same soil as in our garden and between both bags we didn't even get enough potatoes for the week. The ones in the garden are much bigger and we start digging up the new potatoes just as soon as we can, we still end up with a few hundred pounds at the end of the season.
