How 'bout THIS: In climates which warrent the following, why not
try and recycle a couple old tires? Simply place the tuber atopt the
ground, place a tire around it and fill with soil. The nice thing about
this is that additional tires can be stacked up as needed. Urban potato
gardening is quite easy employing this method.
