Step 2: Tater-tire
- Choose a sunny spot in your yard, garden or on a patio or balcony.
- Stack two or three tires and fill them with damp earth and compost to just over half the depth of the stacked tires.
- Then place 4 or 5 seed potatoes in the stack, about 2 inches deep, with the eyes or shoots facing up.
- Cover with a couple of inches of soil and don`t forget to water
Step 3: Grow chart
Add more soil around the young plants as well to support them.
Continue mounding up the soil around the emerging plants until your stack is 3 tires high.
Young potatoes will be forming all the way up the stack of tires
