Re: Growing Potatoes in a Laundry Basket

Actually, any big container will do, a half barrel, an old garbage can, a big flower pot. I do this every year and I can get 20 - 30 lbs of potatoes from each container.I currently have 4 on the go, including an old tin wash tub. and they are growing like crazy. wish I could show you pics.
Just be sure and give them plenty of water, as containers dry out vey quickly.
I have grown all kinds, and it makes no difference so ong as they are kept watered.

Re: Using Manure to Fertilize Your Garden

I am about to make large raised beds and I can get as much rotted manure I want from the farm next door. (the manure is years old and looks like soil) How much of this should I put into 20 inch high beds before adding top soil?
Thank you so much. I am so glad I discovered this site.
