    EASY way to grow potatoes with just newspaper and straw! I wonder if it works

    EASY way to grow potatoes with newspaper and straw. Soak newspaper in water and put down thick layers. Add potatoes. If they have lots of eyes, cut them in half. Face the eyes upward. Cover the pototoes with straw. As they grow, add more straw to keep them fairly covered. You'll know they're ready to harvest when the plants start to die off...then just uncover the potatoes. The roots will have grown down into the ground, but the potatoes will be laying on top for easy access!
