Hard to see but in this broken recycle bin are both Jalapeno (sale 50¢) & two or three found sprouted potatoes planted. Total cost for this garden container = 50¢.
Truth be told potatoes are a forbidden food for us due to diabetes but every once in a while it's a treat.
In a shtf scenario with a decrease in our daily calorie intake eating potatoes would be a good thing. I do have a supply of professionally dehydrated potato in our long term storage.
A space saving method to grow large amounts of potatoes in is the barrel or trash can method.
Besides we're working on decreasing our wastefulness, we need to make amends for neglecting those potatoes on the cellar floor. Bad Homesteaders bad.
Waste not want not.
