    Howdy, I am interested in trying to grow taters in buckets or bags, anyone had any luck with this? I am very tight on space and would really like to try to grow some potatoes. Thanks in advance.

    Tires, barrels, or make simple wood boxes out of 1X6 to stack on top of each other. Hay mixed with dirt makes a good topper as you grow. Taters like a loose soil.

    Start with good seed taters and not ones you've bought at the grocery store if you want any amount of production.

    Make sure you have lots of nutrients, they are quite hungry things ISTR.
