How-to Make a Potato Tower
Last year this sweet looking tower produced enough potatoes to last us all Summer & Fall!
What you will need:
Poles ( you can use anything but I used plastic poles)
Something to till the ground
Weed mesh or plastic netting
Mac also recommend gloves.
These were found at Tractor Supply
Till the area you are going to start your towers.
Place four poles in a circular area.
I always have my cutie garden side-kick to help out.
Gardens and small children are just plain amazing!
They love to learn and watch things grow without realizing it's manual labor.
I hammered the poles into the ground like so..
I didn't make them very wide or big because space is limited.
If you have a larger area by all means make them as small or as large as you like.
Place the netting around the poles then add some dirt. I added a layer of dirt then placed the seed potatoes. Added dirt the placed more seed potatoes. I went up about half way up and stopped. As they grow you have room to keep adding dirt. They will grow up and can grow down. This is an excellent space saver and I have found they do really well.
