I thought I would give you an update on how the 3 potato towers we planted in late March were doing.
Maybe you can’t see it from this angle, but the leaves on all of the plants are beginning to turn yellow.
This can only mean 1 thing, the potatoes will be ready to harvest soon.
Even the potatoes in the compost heap are beginning to turn from a deep green to a greenish-yellow color. I’m actually pretty excited about this. I’d like to know how many spuds are in there.
I do think we’ll end up getting a larger harvest from the compost heap than any of the towers, but I could be wrong. I guess we will just have to wait a few more weeks until all the leaves die back and we tip the cages over to find out.
I hope I’m wrong though, but it would be really cool to discover those towers are loaded with potatoes.
Did you try potato towers this year?
Have you harvested your potatoes yet?
