If you eat a lot of potatoes, you’ll want to read this one. This super easy afternoon project can end up feeding you and your family for weeks, and only requires minimal care.
What’s even better is that this potato tower can last throughout the growing season. Start one tower in spring to have potatoes through the summer, another in the summer to last until autumn, and a final one in late summer to get you through to early winter. These towers keep warm and moist up until November — meaning you can feed your family even longer.
