potato in tyres

These potatoes were planted  in the tyres when they were sprouting in October 2012.

As the potatoes grow, another tyre is added and more soil added until we reached 3 tyres for each plant. The flowers on the plants were nipped off so that the harvest would not come out green. The plants died off and we removed the tyres and harvested the most delicious  potatoes.
