Garden Journal: 21 Jan 2009: Potato tower phase one

Today I took my lunch hour to start setting up the potato tower. I set 8 pieces of rebar, each about 7' long, into a circle, and then started weaving split bamboo around it.

It looks like it should work pretty well.

The rebar was recovered from the gutter in front of a house they had been remodeling around the corner from us. The pieces were quite long, maybe 14 or 16 feet. I used our cutting torch to cut them a more appropriate size.

So far our only cash outlay has been for the soil and seeds.
