Potatoes are one of my favorite foods. Today I learned that I can plant and grow potatoes in a bushel basket. I always thought I had to have a big garden with lots of space to grow potatoes. Two potatoes plants can grow nicely in a bushel basket at about eight inches deep. Potatoes generally like cold so it’s good to plant them early in the year by February. It’s a little late this year as it’a already April.
This might be a fun project to use up some old potatoes next year. I bet Lady Bug would really get a kick out of growing her own potatoes. She loves to eat them already. With potatoes she grew on her own I can be certain that she would he eat tons more.
