Now remember I had dug up about five potatoes a few weeks before to see how they were doing. Since then we have been digging a couple up every other day or so for dinner. Now we have decided to go ahead and dig the rest up and see the entire batch. We didn’t plant a huge crop this time but we did get a lot more in return than what we originally planted.

Here are some pictures…

The rings we grew them in were cut from food grade barrels…

The one on the right is shown just after removing the ring to harvest the potatoes…

Can you see the potatoes sticking out of the dirt?

So there you have it. Now that we believe we have it down pretty well with the soil mixture etc… next year we plan to plant lots more and hopefully do even better.
