How To Build The Best Potato Box Ever
The “potato box” or “spud box” has become an effective method to produce a large quantity of potatoes in a small space. The idea is ingenious – forcing the potato plant to “stretch” upward as it grows allows more area of the plant to produce potatoes.
The potato “growing” box is just that – a series of frames that stack, or grow, as the potato plant grows. I like to look at the frames as resembling the floors of a building. In this project, our potato “building” will be six stories tall.
Using this method you can see up to four times the yield when compared to normal growing conditions. Check out how to make one and let us know if you do. I have had fantastic results from using one.
