Potatoes are certainly not hard to grow. You could simply throw some peelings with eyes on them into the garden and cover them over with dirt or straw.
THE TRADITIONAL WAY TO GROW POTATOES
Traditionally gardeners dig a deep trench, plant their potatoes seedlings and cover them over, then hill up the soil over the shoots two or three times as they emerge.
GROWING POTATOES IN A POT
Make sure to choose a really big pot. One potato plant should set several potatoes, and these need lots space to grow.
GROWING POTATOES IN A TIRE
Place sheets of newspaper on the grass, dampen them, place the tubers on top and circle them with one tire.
GROWING POTATOES IN A BAG
A bag is not as stable as a pot, it may need to be propped up against something or have a few rocks around it for support.
GROWING POTATOES IN STRAW
Simply place the tuber on the ground and keep on covering the shoot with layers of straw.
