I can’t vouch for the actual amount of potatoes grown through this rig that you can make in your very own yard or balcony, but I bet you dollars to doughnuts that it’s not too far off.
What I really like about this approach is that it requires nothing more than a saw and a screwdriver. Better still is the harvesting: you unscrew one panel, reach in, take potatoes out, screw the side back on, add some new soil and compost, and you’re good to go. Great, simple innovative little hack. If it’s anything like the tomatoes that I grew last year, I bet the flavor of these potatoes will be hard to beat.
We’ll be talking about this and other things urban ag tomorrow morning at the Anodyne Moments gathering, which happens from around 9AM till around 11. Hope to see you there!
