Potatoes, which are rich in starch, are a staple in prepper food stockpiles.
You don’t even need a huge plot of land to cultivate them. In fact, you can grow potatoes in several buckets! (h/t to ModernSurvivalOnline.com)
Before you start planting potatoes in random buckets, gather these materials first:
When the potato plant starts growing, cover the new growth to cultivate more potatoes. Once the plant has grown at least four to five inches above the top of the soil, add more soil until only the tip of the plant is showing. Keep doing this until the bucket is full.
More potatoes will sprout on new growth if you cover it with soil. Eventually, the plant itself will turn yellow and die off. After this happens empty the bucket and collect the potatoes. (Related: Fruits and vegetables to store in your root cellar.)
In the long run, planting potatoes in either a garden plot or a bucket will give you access to a starchy and versatile plant that can keep you and your loved ones fed if and when SHTF.
