Build as you Grow Potato Bin
- (2) 8'x1 1/4" wood cut in half
- (16)3"x6' cut into 3 pieces (each piece is 3"x2') to go up 2 ft on the box, (I would start with that and add more later if needed
- (50) wood screws
- A drill
- 4 potato eyes
- peat moss
|First Step build the base, Second Step screw in the poles|
|Make sure to screw the poles in the same direction of your other screws|
|Step 3: use clamps while drilling section to poles|
|You're Done! Fill with compost and peat moss and plant|
Update: If your plan on storing your potato bin indoors for winter like me, I would suggest adding a bottom to the bin made of cedar. I figured this out this fall the hard way and plan to fix this before I plant this spring.
