The great potato experiment of 2010 is turning in dismal results so far.
I planted three containers in March filling them with soil as the plants grew.
The largest container's plants died back first. I dumped that container out the other evening. It had fungus gnat larvae. I got a handful of small potoatoes. My guess is the container didn't drain well.
The other two containers still have growing plants, although they are getting spindly. I'm hoping they fair better. I'll keep you updated.
