Well, I planted potatoes in five gallon buckets, adding dirt as they grew this year. I ended up with enough small potatoes for two dinners. They were very good, but I was very disappointed with the yields. However, when I researched the idea more, the general consensus was to use red or yellow seed potatoes for abundant success. I just used some russet potatoes that had grown eyes while sitting in my pantry over the winter. Next year I may try the idea again, using seed potatoes and a lot more buckets.
