Potatoes in pots

Potatoes in pots

We plant potatoes at the bottom of pots, with only four inches of soil to begin with. Then as the potato sprouts and grows taller, we add soil several different times until the pot is full, and the potatoes are very tall. The reason we do this is to prevent the potatoes which form near the surface of the soil from turning green from photosynthesis.
