Growing Spuds in Recycled Coffee Bags!

We found this great idea and are planning to try it! If you have a burlap bag  you can, too! 

By simply rolling down the sides of the bags like you would roll up your sleeves, and then planting potatoes in the bottom, you are started. As the plants grow you add more soil covering the plant stems by 1/2. Keep adding soil as the plants keep growing until they reach the top. When then are finished growing all you need to do is slit open the bag and find your burried treasure! You can plant these anywhere. We will be planting these with the kids in the” Go Green” Club at John Brown ElementarSchool in Rathdrum.
