  1. Good information but seriously…I hate when videos waste my time. this 10 min video could have passed the info in about half the time. We do not need to hear you count out your seed potatoes 2+ times

    But will it blend?

  4. check out vids on trash can potatoes, there are many, but watch many of them. there is one with a woman that has a small greenhouse and uses like 5 garbage cans and she gets a couple hundred pounds worth.

    Great video. A quick question, long term how much farming space would you say would be required to sustain one person per year? I don’t really have access to farm land but this stuff is of concern to me and I would like to start becoming self sufficient before something goes wrong.

  6. I saw another video of yours about planting the potato and I wanted to know how to make the seed. I searched for another video and found another from you.
    Thank you for posting so many videos!
    I learn a lot from you!

    Great video! Gonna try it myself:)

    But I have a question: My space is limited, how much space do I need between the seed potatoes? If I plant them in 5gallon buckets for instance, how many can be planted in the same bucked do you think?

    Thanks in advance!

    great vid kev, how are your melons doing out at the camp ?

  9. Do you mulch them once in a while so the tubers don’t get near the son, or do you just cover them with more dirt as the leaves grow. I want to do this in a garbage can. Thanks!

  10. You know what dude. I have been raising potato’s for about 60 years and I cut the seed every spring, and I always cut them towards my thumb and have yet to cut myself. I guess if you are a dumb ass you might have a problem. I soak them for about 5 min in a dilute solution of bleach water. That kills bacteria and keeps them from rotting and also keeps blithe and scale from growing on them. All around good video though. You can cut your seed as long as you leave an eye on.

    Love your experiments! Greetings from a fellow garden experimenter out of Hamburg, Germany. Keep on growing!

  12. This was very helpful. I needed step by step. Thanks!

  13. When cutting potatoes you can leave them to dry for 48 hours before planting. Plant at least 4 to 8 inches deep just incase of frosts. I have been growing potatoes for 53 years and it works for me Remember to earth up when plant are about 4 inches high. I plant about 300 tubers per season which gives me about 6 cwt of potatoes That lasts me all Winter. Nothing beats the taste of home grown spuds ( that what we call them in the UK )

  14. Plant at least 4 inches deep just incase of frosts

    Really handy video. Thank you.

  23. Very informative. Thank you.

  24. you can plant any plants any ways upside down on the side what ever
    plants will always grow roots and leafs towards top or bottom

    plant a seed upside down and it will always grow towards the upside producing leaves and roots towards bottom .
