Growing potatoes in tires!
This is the pototato tire experiment. I will keep tract of the yield from the many plants in the doubled tire stack as compared to the single tires, since they are in the same area, and see if I get more potatoes! Hedging my bets - I also have several rows in the back garden and a cage in the front garden bed, too. Pix later!
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
