Presented below are the 2 methods for growing potatoes in small spaces. Pick the method you like best and start growing.

Method #1

The trick is to build four foot square box out of 2″x6″ boards. Fill the box with nutrient rich soil and seed potatoes. When the plants grow to about 12 inches above the soil, add more soil and another level of boards.

Continue doing this until you have six boards. By the end of the season your plants will have many potatoes for harvesting. The beauty of this method is that you don’t have to wait until the end of the season to have potatoes.

To harvest some potatoes throughout the season, just start from the bottom level and unscrew a board and take the potatoes from the bottom-most level.

When you have the potatoes you want, replace the soil and reattach the board. You can continue to do this whenever you need, just go to the next level. Pretty cool, huh? To read more go to
