The Building of a Potato Condo

From GardenFreshLiving blog:

"This is bio-intensive gardening and vertical gardening at its best!

The idea is that you build a wooden box and plant potatoes in the bottom layer. As the potatoes grow, you keep adding wood boards (and soil) to keep the stems buried, thus producing more potatoes along the stems as you move up.You get the maximum yield in a small space because you are growing vertically."

A very pretty, and scrap wood-useful alternative to growing in a trash barrel - though that works well, too! Thank you, Theresa for the info!
