Spudtastik (Not)...

Well, we've emptied all of the potato buckets now, and with just about the same results as the first one.  Pitiful.
The red potatoes came in at 2#9.6 oz. and the fingerlings were only 1#3.7 oz.  Not the best results, but we are going to put them in full sun next year and see if the shade was the problem.  Also, the dirt seemed to be so heavy at the bottom of the    buckets, clay like.  I'm going to add some sand and try to lighten up the soil some.  Anyway -- we have a few meals here.  Verdict on bucket planting = undetermined.  Will try again with some changes.
We live and learn!
