Growing potatoes in bags
Bend the edges of the bags a little and fill half with earth.
Make a well in the center of each bag and place one potato tuber. Sprinkle with earth on top.
Using scissors on the sides of the bags, make punctures at a distance of about 15 cm from each other. Periodically water the soil in bags. Deadwood can be used as fertilizer – spread it on the ground in bags.
After 10 days, the potatoes will sprout by about 10-15 cm in height. Continue to care for the plants, and after a month, add top dressing.
When potato plants reach a height of 40-50 cm, a fence must be made for them. The design can be made from wooden cuttings and sticks. Secure them around the plants with ropes.
Potato tubers can be dug up three months after planting in the ground. By this time, the upper part of the plants will become dry and lethargic. Gently pull on the stem of the plant and pull the potatoes out of the ground.
It remains only to sort out the potatoes: clean from the remnants of the roots and soil. In this incredibly simple way, you can grow up to 1 kg. potatoes from one bag.
