Have you grown potatoes in bags?
It's the first I've heard of it and I'm thinking of giving it a try.
What's been your experience?

Right now, Oranges and Meyer Lemons are bountiful.
I've got four Avocado pits in water ready to take root.
I was told a 50% survival for this variety can be expected once it's in dirt.
We'll see.

I haven't purposely grown potatoes in bags. But I plan to plant red potatoes in the ground on St Valentine's Day. Then I plan to plant green snap beans on St Patrick's Day.

Tomatoes and peppers get planted on Good Friday.

I had a pretty little garden of greens and kale up until the last freeze we had here.

I'm planning on growing potatoes and garlic in 5 gallon buckets this year. Maybe something else, but I'm only just now thinking about it all.

I've grown peppers in buckets and that worked really well.

I also have a hop bine. This'll be year 4 so I'm expecting a good harvest. (Year 3 is the first real good year for a harvest, but last year just before prime time, my father in law mowed it down even though there was a large wooden stake in the ground the trellis was tied to. :evil: )

A hop vine is called a bine. I don't know why. Hop growing snobs just told me so.
