Last spring David from Alabama shared pictures of a potato tower he and his wife Darcy built in their backyard using some recycled boards. This is such a great idea that I wanted to share it again for those of you who are planting your potatoes this spring.
Davis and his wife Darcy planted 6 seed potatoes at the bottom of the potato tower and as the potato plants grew, they added a little dirt every week.
David estimated he has emptied about 14 wheelbarrow loads of dirt into the potato tower and he’s hoping to harvest at least 50 lbs of taters in his tower the fall.
Way to go David! Your potato tower looks awesome! Let us know how many pounds you end up with.
