Re: How to Grow Potatoes in a Trash Bag

I have been growing potatoes in grow bags, containers and raised beds for several years now. I have not had any problem crowding the young seed potatoes in these growing venues. If the seed potato is small enough I plant as is, if larger I cut in half, no smaller. I have often had potatoes left over from year to year and will replant those that have sprouted. I have four containers currently and this will hold my husband and I over for the winter. I have grown sweet potatoes in the past, but have not do so to date. My potatoes greens grow as tall as my tomato plants and in the beginning many people could not believe they were potatoes. I had to use tomato stakes and twine to tie them up.
