5 Gallon Bucket Potatoes 4-05-2020 Update

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.

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.
