Have you ever raised potatoes in a trash sack? The reason to do this is to save space in your garden, give them fresh loose soil which they love and make sure each year they get raised in different soil, since they carry some bad stuff with them if you plant them in the same garden. Of course you will punch some holes in the sack for drainage and put it in a bin so that it holds it's shape but it works great and it makes digging the potatoes very easy. All this sounds good to me, I'm going to try it next year. Any advice?

Gee I might try this myself, with the prices of things in the supermarket these days I think I might start growing a few things, I did plant a few tomatoes last year so this year i might try some potatoes, thank you for the idea.
