Great thread S&F. This looks like it would be a very good method for growing potatoes for city dwellers with very little growing area. I only have room for about 6 tomato plants, 6 pepper plants and 3 brocolli plants. It would be great to be able to grow a good amount of potatoes also. I wonder if there is enough time left to start one now and yield a good amount before winter arrives ? Does anyone know how long it takes to grow potatoes ?
