Launching Spudnik

Had a special delivery waiting on the doorstep this afternoon — Yukon Gold seed potatoes from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. This will be our first attempt to grow taters on the wee homestead, and our limited space makes container planting a necessity.

This might be a colossal failure, but we’re planning to use an old garbage can to house the seedlings, a can which shall henceforth be known as Spudnik. Curious about the process? Check out this handy video from The Growing Home and Learning Center:

Have you grown tubers in containers? If so, please let us know what worked…and what didn’t. We’ll be sure to keep you guys posted on their progress throughout the season.
