GreetingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and salutationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s to all my gardening friend's out there.
A few weeks ago I started a new NO DIG potato bed that uses straw instead of dirt to grow the potatoes in.
What I did is I selected an area that was overgrow with grass and weeds and covered all the grass/weeds with a few layers of cardboard, I then gave the layer of cardboard a spray of water, I then proceeded to space the potatoes 1.5 feet apart on top of the cardboard, with that done I covered the potatoes with 12 inches of straw then, then I whet the whole lot down with a last spray of water.
And now 3 weeks later I have potato shoots coming out of the straw, when I see this I just put more straw around each potato shoot until weeks later when the potato shoots go yellow the potatoes are ready for you to uncover them.
Please donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hesitate to Let me know if you have any thoughts on the matter and what I have said about it.
I will keep you all up to date with more pics and result's when i get them.
