WOO HOO! I have potatoes, plants that is!

Someone on one of my gardening groups mentioned growing potatoes in a garbage can and I finally got around to trying it out. I was given some seed potatoes from a co-worker who had extras and I set it up a few weeks ago.

I was out checking on my garden spots and realized I'd kinda ignored the bin, so I went to check it and here is what I found:

So I added more compost and water and will let them grow more and keep adding compost as they get taller:

The idea is to grow the potatoes up in a small space. So it will be interesting to see what kind of yield I can get. If it works. I will get 2-3 more bins and seriously go for it next year.
