It’s only been a week since we planted our potatoes in the heavy duty garbage bags. However,michael kors outlet online, we are already seeing progress and I wanted to share it with you all.
Earlier in the week, I moved the bags of potatoes on top of a pallet to get them off the ground and provide better drainage. In moving them, the seed potatoes moved as well.
