The seed potatoes that I planted in the second round of potato bucket growing are starting to really take off now. I added some soil to the buckets earlier this week and the plants really jumped almost overnight.
Here is bucket #1 after I added the soil and watered them thoroughly.
Here is bucket #2.
Finally, here is bucket #3.
The plants in bucket #1 are growing the fastest but buckets 2 & 3 are starting to gain ground.
It seems that every time I add additional soil the plants grow between 1 and 5 inches overnight. It really is amazing to watch these potatoes grow. Hopefully there is a nice potato crop in these buckets when it is time to harvest them.
