Growing potatoes in these towers requires no digging. You can reach in to grab new potatoes, or you can wait until the crop is mature, undo the tower, and watch your potatoes tumble out.
The yield is supposedly two to three times greater than growing them in the ground.
I built five of them. Are they too tall? I'm suddenly worried that I'm being too optimistic about their growth.
