- Start with the edges rolled down to create a shorter bag. Fill the burlap sack with about five inches of loose soil. If you are fertilizing the soil this is when you should do it.
- Place the potatoes at the top of the soil then add more loose soil
- Roll up the sack as the plant grows taller, mounding up soil around the stems which will encourage more potatoes to grow.
Since burlap sacks are porous you can water over top of the bags. They drain well, but remember they start to decompose and can only be used for one season. Enjoy your harvest! This and more stories about uses for burlap bags are at Kicking Horse Coffee
