I used the container method from this book and I got taters!!!!! This feeling is soo much better than that day I got married. My ego not the least bruised when the book explained taters will grow without dirt (wanh wanh). It seems to have taken a little more than a month but, voila, I think the plant is going to grow over the side of my plastic container with holes in it.
I'm so excited about having my own potatoes in my freezer (sweet po's) the russets have not made a showing (that I can tell) but I am as sure as any farmer they will (new buds that may be my russets; only wish I'd thrown in some 'new' even though they're my least favorite.
I rushed to my book when I saw bugs; dashed to my book for fertilizer advice. I could go on. There's no way I could be less than a novice (this was my first year to see a head of lettuce that wasn't in the store) but this book has lead me to success.
He also goes in about all his books you are supposed to buy after he misses the point with this book.
SFG Foundation (square foot garden) recommends 4 potato seeds in a square bucket about 4 in from base of bucket and slowly filling with compost not sure if its in the book, but found on YouTube sfg potato

After reading this book, I am truly excited for it to get cooler so that I can put my "tater" plan in motion. I'm not sure if it will work, but from what this book says, it just might: I bought one of those cheap-o plastic clothes hampers with all the big holes up and down the sides. I plan to punch some more holes in the bottom, then line it with either black mesh or that black weed cover fabric stuff that lets light and air in and water out. This will give a good bit of black to the outside, but I live in Florida, so I'm not sure the black, heat absorption thing matters too much; it doesn't get that cold here for long. Anyway, then I'm going to "hill" my taters up until they get to the top. If it goes badly, I will just fork out the money for a potato bag the author recommends, but I thought I'd be adventurous (and cheap) first.
