1 Growing Potatoes in old tires ( Tire Potatoes ) CrazyFishFarmer style – Just wanted to experiment with growing potatoes in some old tire i had lying around. www.crazyfishfarmer.com http
cool man keep em coming
maybe insted of 4 notchec you could cut 6 or maybe 8 notches in them,
make more potatos than you need so you can make ethenol from the extra ones,
(home made fule)
very good idea! i bet you get shitloads!! i think ur on to somethin.. good luck
Only time will tell… I am going to grow them in the normal tire setup… One tire at a time… Then i am going to grow them in a mound to…. By the end of the year… I will be in the potatoe business… LOL
i heard thats the best way to grow them in tires, just keep adding tires on top…cool!
maybe strawberries too
bitcin jig saw
did this in my garden and the potato’s are doing fine. Just put more mulch around the plants as they grow. Already had to add my second tire on the first. No cutting of the tires.
nice, but this is toxic for ur plants
Goof Point …Short-term, tire planters are OK, Long-term, tire rubber will slowly biodegrade and release zinc, carcinogenic PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and other toxic compounds into your soil.
I hear you can grow peanuts like this too. Any one know of anything else you can grow using tires like this?
Please post more on this project!!
Your a genius if you get as many potatoes as I think you could get!
Nice video, the music reminds me of Benny Hill, and quite frankly this idea is like something that would be seen on that show. Thanks for the ideas!
It’s a good idea. potatoes with tyre taste XD
did you get a good crop at harvest? or was it crappy
nice but my neighbors frown on the sanford and son stacked tire display..
can you show something thats a bit less redneck?
@stymye – I would grow stuff in a Mercedes-Benz if i could get my hands on one…

@tsimonin lol ,,, point taken
@HaginwithSpencer And into your taters too.
Some fencing in a circle will work just as well without all the toxins (look up ‘potato tower’).
My cousin & I did this up in West Virginia over 50 years ago. We stacked ‘em
about 6 high and never cut notches in ‘em- didn’t need to. The vines found
their way thru the tires and looked like big green bushes til the potatoes were
ready. When the vines turn brown, every time you want taters you just go out
& knock off a tire.
As for the Goof Point above, we didn’t use NEW TIRES. You use ones that
have been weathered several years. We never had no problem with cancer
from tire taters.
@stymye We were over a mile from our nearest neighbor up in WV and they grew taters same way.
But if you live in some snob-knob prick-ville PAINT THE TIRES FIRST.
Hell, you could even paint ‘em to match your house.
Now I hear tell some places have you GET A LICENSE TO MAKE GARDEN!
I’d move outta there so fast all the Nazi sonsabitches would see is SMOKE.
Idea is to FIND A USE for old tires- its called “RECYCLE”; and u better be
glad for rednecks. When the SHTF they gonna save America!
@GooglFascistsI hear you brother, my 2 neighbors are good people and could care less, we all stay armed and prepped but the rest are not , If I could, I would purchase 5 acres in the country and mow my lawn naked,,unfortunately I’m not in that position so I keep it on the lowdown for now.
I don’t quite understand your idea, since potatoes grow from the roots. that is why you normally hill them. this looks more like a strawberry planter. I may use it for that . thanks for the idea
NEVER DO THIS! Potatoes take up cadmium a toxic heavy metal and tire manufactures use cadmium to fix black color in tires.. The cadmium will go into potatoes and into your system where they will bio-accumulate! BAD IDEA!
