Spuds in a tyre
This is my attempt at growing spuds in a Tyre. I have tried this before but was unhappy with the results due to the side walls of the tyres stopping even watering of the compost and soil I us inside the tyres. This time I have cut out the side walls with a Stanley knife and so far I'm a lot more satisfied with the results, but time will tell.
I planted 3 Kipfler tubers and have another set of tyres ready for 3 more.
The two tyres you see in the background will be stacked on top of each other as the potatoes grow and filled with more compost. I'm not sure if I'll need a fourth but i will decide when the time arrives. I'll post progress photo's as they grow.
