Potato Towers (Lasagna Method)

Tree from the Free Farm Stand yesterday told us about potato towers:

As people must know by now I am excited about planting potatoes this year and last week we built and planted four towers in 2 gardens. On Tuesday a few friends showed up at Treat Commons and we installed the tall wire mesh potato tower there. A lot of kids from the park came in the garden to help and they mixed up soil and mulch and added it to the tower. Later that day we went to the Secret Garden with the Jamestown Center kids and planted potatoes in trash cans with their bottoms cut off.

Read on for lots more detail about how it’s done, including explanation of the lasagna bit.
