Answer: You've got the basic idea. Start with straw or mulch on the bottom of the container (about 12 inches deep). Plant your seed potatoes and cover them with mulch material (compost, peat, soil, or a mix of these). As the potato plants grow, keep adding organic matter, but don't cover the plants entirely - allow the leaves to be above the mulch. Potatoes will form in the straw or mulch and will be easy to harvest.
