Growing Potatoes Indoors in a Five Gallon Bucket

Don’t throw away those potatoes that have “gone bad” and grown eyes. Instead, toss one, eyes up, in a 5 gallon bucket that has holes drilled in the bottom for drainage and cover it with about 6 inches of dirt. In no time at all, you will have a healthy and ferociously growing potato plant! Once the plant starts to grow a few inches above the dirt surface, add a little more dirt. Repeat this process over and over again over the course of a few days until the dirt is within a couple of inches of the top of the bucket. Now, let the potato plant get plenty of sunshine and start growing you a bucket full of potatoes. Don’t be surprised if the potatoes are a little small, but in a world without rule of law (WROL) or shit hits the fan (SHTF) situation, being able to grow potatoes indoors could provide you with a valuable food source all year.
