Grow Potatoes in Laundry Basket. I bought baskets at dollar store. Fill baskets with about 2" of soil & compost, then put a seed potato into each basket (each potato was cut into about 3 pieces with 2-3 eyes each). Cover the potato with soil, and gradually fill the baskets with soil as the potatoes grow, each basket should yield 8-10 lbs of potatoes. Be sure to keep the baskets watered well - (ie - slow watering) to not have all the water run out the sides of the basket.

Interesting idea for starting plants - kind of like mini greenhouses
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - Plastic containers to grow food should have recycling numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 on the bottom. Plastic containers with a 3 have PVC in them. In time chemicals leach out contaminating soil. Styrofoam is made of plastic number 6 and have cancerous effects, Number 7 contains bisphenol A which is harmful to the behavioral growth of children.
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - VERY good idea! Use larger containers with drain holes.
