Growing potatoes in tires
This year I tried something different.I planted potatoes in old truck tires.I read about it on another site and figured I'd give it a try. I planted 4 small cut pieces of eyed potatoes in one tire directly on the ground.A week or so later the plants started growing.When the plant got about 10 inches tall I stacked another tire and added more dirt covering the plant except leaving 4 to 5 inches of it exposed.As the plants grew I just kept adding more tires and dirt.I ended up with a stack of tires roughly 5 feet tall.The plants still grew another 12 to 15 inches beyond the top tire.The plants grew and bloomed as normal as they would have in the ground.Yesterday I figured it was time to harvest.I started taking it apart and there was not a single potato in the whole stack! I have no Idea what could have went wrong? I followed the instructions and the plants grew like crazy.Has anyone grew potatoes like this?What could have went wrong? I have no idea what kind of potatoes I planted?I got them from my mother-in-law.They were just medium sized white potatoes.The were left in the bottom of her potato drawer and started growing eyes.Anyone have any knoledge on growing potatoes?
