Here is a photo of what I may try, growing potatoes in a bag. It sounds so easy, and the gophers would be deterred, and my sometimes soggy soil wouldn't rot the taters.
I have never grown potatoes.
With this technique I think you add more soil and cover the leaves as the potatoes begin to grow. I understand you can also grow potatoes in a bucket that has drainage holes in it.
If you have tips on this potato in a bag idea please share them here.
