While not yet, but I am looking forward in anticipation. The Yukon Gold potatoes are growing gangbusters.
They were planted 8”deep 16 days ago and are now 16+” tall.
I do not remember what day I planted the Kennebec potatoes but they broke through the surface about 4-5 days ago.
Which brings me to the potato tower; I planted one Kennebec spud in the tower 8” deep the same time as the other Kennebec spuds.
It broke through the surface the same day as the first Kennebec spud in the beds and I quickly put the first tier in place.
This is a close-up of the previous photo.
The next morning I filled the tier about half way and placed some compost up against the plant to the leaves.
This is a close-up of how I covered the plant. It is about 2-3” below the surface of the compost.
By the next morning, it had grown another couple of inches and I pulled some compost into the hole covering the stem.
I repeated this for two more days and the tier was full.
I added the second and last tier and will repeat the process until it is full. The tower is 20 ½” tall and that should be enough to show if the process works for me or not. As usual, all comments are welcome. John
