Potato Box Update

Posted by olemike on 05/03/2012

I thought I would provide an update on how my potato box potatoes are doing.  Here is a before picture

and current.

So far so good – I added some more potting soil a  few days ago.  They are growing quite well.  Here’s hoping for some good potatoes.  Another update will follow in a few weeks.

Additionally, my onions and peas are also faring pretty well.  Take a look.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! This potato box is a cool idea. Wish I was handy like that!

  2. That looks great, Mike! Gotta love growing your own food, even in suburbia. =)

  3. Potatoes look great! I don’t have the patience to keep filling them up with more dirt often enough to grow them that way.

    Good luck with your potato box. I’ve got a much more low-tech “potato tower” going in my garden, and I’m just seeing the first shoots of potato plant coming up. Here’s hoping that you and I both get decent harvests out of them!

    Took a tour of you blog postings and see that we are well aligned….. The potato box concept works pretty well. Thanks

    Wow, it all looks great! You must be in a warmer zone than I am–I’m in 5B, western Massachusetts, so our last frost date was this past weekend. I’m doing potatoes in grow bags–similar concept, different structure. I hope mine will soon be looking as good as yours.
