But since it is hear and I have seen itr here on the other potato thread I will say something about it.

Some time ago I was looking on line and saw tons of hand drawn pictures and articles on growing in barrel.
These (hand drawn) pictures showed that a person could get a huge amount of potatoes by growing in a barrel or box.
Many of these sites said you could use the standard russet potato not an exotic potato few have seen.
No where have I seen any real photographs of this.

Here is a video of the average family like we have here and their bountiful potato tower harvest.
It is about 10 minutes long but you guys should see it.
It is amazing.
