Bucket Potatoes – Jon’s Garden

with No Comments

Looks like my potatoes are ready for the bucket! Planted two of them. I’m only looking to get 5 maybe 6 potatoes out of them.

I bought some 5-gallon buckets from Lowe’s. Drilled holes in the bottom, which is very important. The holes allow for excess water to drain out of the bucket and helps prevent overwatering. Often we believe a plant isn’t getting any water because the soil on top is dry. More often than not that is simply not true. Always check to see if the soil is moist underneath the top crust.

Not much care will go into these. You can set them and forget them.
