I haven't tried this but it sounds like a good idea:

Use old car tyres in a stack and add tyres as the potatoes grow higher 
and you keep covering them with soil / potting mix.  Harvesting is easy 
too - just remove the "packaging".

>> How do you do potatoes in a bucket? How big is
the bucket? It seems I've heard that you have to
keep adding dirt/compost/whatever as the plant
grows? Any info you can provide would be helpful.
