Growing Potatoes In 5 Gallon Buckets

This summer, my wife Jeanne and I, have decided to experiment with growing potatoes in a 5 gallon buckets, the kind you can purchase from Home Depot or Lowes. We were inspired by the multitude of YouTube vidoes, however as you can see in the bellow video, our results are not promising at all. I doubt very much we will be planting potatoes this way next year. We will just stick to our tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, egg plants etc.
