Looking for a few good tires...

Virginia Rogan used to help out at her kids school garden and mentioned a fun project planting potatoes in tires.  I have not been able to stop thinking about it--the space saving resourcefullness and sheer fun of digging through dirt with the kids to find little tuber treasures is right up this garden's alley.  So when I read in today's paper that it was time to start planting potatoes, I was ALL over it!

Here's a link on how to do it in case you want to try at home.

Hoping you'll let me know if you have a tire or 2 laying around that you might want to contribute to the project?  And maybe some, past their prime, sprouted organic potatoes sitting in your pantry?
More soon.
