Pot of potatoes

I am not quit up to gardening yet. I have a 2 week after surgery restriction. But this did not stop me from taking photos today.
I have been trying diffrent ways this year. Using top soil bags self watering containers. Even colored mulches. I placed one potato plant in this red bucket it seem to be doing the best.
The one on the left is in top soil bag is 2nd best.
The one on the right side near fence is direct in the ground.
All 3 were started on the same day.
The top soil bag to the right has geranium starts.
I added aluminum foil to the bottom of the cabbage . As silver mulch is said to deter bugs and enhance growth.

To see more of how I am using colored mulch in my garden click here. To go to my garden journal.

I'm very impressed with the experimentation you are doing in your garden. The red pot certainly seems to be helping the potato plant to grow.
