This year, to stretch our gardening space a little further, I suggested we try growing potatoes in bags. Yes, bags. I'd heard you could do this - and, well, we have lots of those reusable Trader Joes and Whole Foods bags, so why not give it a whirl. (Besides, if it succeeded, it could quite possibly end our relationship-long argument about where the best potatoes come from - Maine or Idaho.).
So, we did it. We procured a couple of seed potatoes, two reusable bags, and organic soil. We poked some drainage holes in the bottom of the bags and filled with soil and the seed potatoes. And, we waited.
And, then there was some signs of hope.
And, further signs of hope.
But, only time would tell if there were actually any potatoes in the bag.
At last, it was harvest time. Nervously, we began to dig.
And, then we struck gold. Our first potato.
By the way, all though we can't say yet, I think the best potatoes are grown in Maine. :)
