So I have never tried growing potatoes before. I plan to try growing a variety that are supposedly purple, although the seed potatoes don't look very purple:
But they have good sprouts on them so there is that.
Here is a 2x2 bed, filled with compost and dirt to a bit below the surface, with a bamboo and mesh cage surrounding three sides. I plan to wall up the fourth side with more mesh as I fill in the dirt and compost around the plants as they grow.
So I lay my taters in the middle and also a line of peas around the edge (might as well get extra use from the trellis).
So - did I do right?
