    I do not get a chance to watch you often but when I do, I really enjoy you!

    Don't know what kind he grew, but in the spring, my Papa would put the potato chits, in a big barrel that the bottom had rusted out of. He would put in some dirt, don't remember him watering it, but he might have. He would put all the grass clippings from the yard in the barrel after he mowed. He just kept doing that all summer long. In the fall, he would tip the barrel over and harvest the potatoes.
    I talked to the gentleman who mows my lawn and he is going to get a grass catcher next year, and we are going to try it.
    Blessings

    Lol, cool I'm about to do my potatoes garden. Glad it slow maintenance.

    My great uncle use to grow the biggest Pontiac red potatoes I ever saw. They often baked one potato and split it in half. Two potatoes made a large skillet of fried potatoes. I wished I was old enough then to learn how he grew them. In the fall he gave them away to the family as he planted a 3-acre plot of them every year.

    There has to be a better way to grow potatoes

    Luckily your sweet potato harvest was so good!

  • Teri Carnright 8 months ago

    My first year doing potatoes… Planted 3 varieties in 5 gallon grow pots. Only one produced well. BUT.. threw the remaining seed potatoes into the "real" garden, covered with straw and left them. WHAT a nice harvest! No work, no watering. Can't wait to plant again this next year!

    I've gotten potatoes from potato peels. Not big potatoes but, good size for frying.

    With the little ones do the potato candy that Hollis and Nancy do. Do you plant the biggest one like Paul Gautschi does or do you buy seed potatoes?

    I love you two. Your such a cute couple.

  • Pattsy Dayley 8 months ago

    I have tried this numerous times. I watered and fertilized and took good care and still got very few potatoes. I agree with Bumble Bee Junction's remark that everytime you add dirt, add more seed potatoes. I haven't tried that but It makes sense to me. Thanks for the fun videos.

    I think you passed. Last year I planted 5# of potatoes and harvested 53#. I put out russets, on the wet end of my garden, next to my sunflowers. I didn't work with my potatoes either, but I was very blessed. I added some leaves and sheep manure.
