BEHOLD THE MIGHTY POTATO TOWER!



Ok, maybe not so mighty... it's kinda cute, really. Only 18" in diameter, and roughly 4' tall, but 2 layers each of 'Yellow Finn' and 'Dark Red Norland' potatoes. I hope something comes of it... It is in the sunny spot where I really should have put the main garden. Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] dervishspin who found the nifty how-to! Thanks also to [personal profile] kurlon who helped hold the silly thing upright and open whilst I attempted to pour soil mix inside and not all over him. I mostly succeeded. One thing that needs to be done is staking it so it stays upright... I don't want to have the Slightly Leaning Tower of Potatoes become the Great Potato Caterpillar. Couple weeks I should hopefully have some sprouts showing through, maybe even before.

Yay potatoes!
No purple ones? I have some strange obsession about those guys. If I ever get a real house instead of an apartment, I'm totally going to try and grow something!
