In case you’re an avid potato lover, this is the right article for you! We’re going to present you an interesting project that will help you feed your whole family for several weeks and you only need minimal care.
This is a potato tower that will even last through the whole season. You can start one during springtime so that your potatoes are ready for the summer. Then, start another one in the summer to have it ready in the autumn period. Start the final one in late summer so that you can have potatoes during the winter period. These towers are simply amazing!
In this article, we’re presenting you the whole process as well as a video about the potato tower!
Build your tower
Use something similar to fencing so that you can create an upright cylinder. Its diameter should be about 2 or 3 feet.
Line the tower with straw
The bottom of the tower should be lined with straw. After that, put about 1 foot of soil. Put the seeds of potatoes on 3 or 4 inches from the edge. They should be 6 inches apart from one another.
Fill it to the top
Put layers in the tower: straw, then soil and potatoes in the end. Fill it to the top.
Water your tower
Make sure your potato tower soil is moist all the time, but it shouldn’t be oversaturated. You’ll be amazed by the results in 3 months.
Tear down your tower
You can now reap what you’ve sown! Take the potatoes from the top, going down carefully. You should reach the soil and then hay.
Enjoy your beautiful potatoes! The video will present you a woman that managed to grew pounds of potatoes from only 1 bag of seed potatoes of two pounds. It sounds really inspiring! Take a look!
