Planting White Potatoes in a Tub or Bucket

For a fun project, try growing Irish potatoes in a tub! It's time to buy the tubers and assemble the supplies now. By growing in perlite, the potatoes are harvested as clean as a whistle! See for details:

    Last year I tried planting potatoes twice in April, both froze. In May I again planted potatoes, organic purple potatoes, just the eyes. In early August I harvested my purple potatoes. :)
