The last potato tower for 2009
There is a three part video of the harvest of this tower in the lefthand column of my journal. There are also hi-res photos, click on a photo for medium res then click again for hi res.
I should give a recap on the tower. The base of the tower is 8" deep. Two Kennebec seed potatoes were planted 6" deep, then two tiers added and filled with compost. The seed potatoes ended up about 16"+ deep. This was not an incremental filling of the tower. The tower was filled within 15min of planting. After about 2-3 weeks the one sprout broke through the surface and the other never showed up. When harvested there were no signs of it ever trying so it turned out to be a dud spud.
