Potatoes in the living room!

Going from endless space to grown things to no space at all- I've accepted the challenge and started growing indoors. I found this web page which led me to lots of others like it, all about how to grow spuds in a box. So we started it in our living room about 2 weeks ago, and today we were able to add the second layer.

Ours is a little different, I am using a cardboard box I found, lined with a plastic trash bag. Our dirt isn't great, just topsoil and potting soil. However the potatoes are doing great! They have really grown allot in the time they have had, even with not much sun the past 2 weeks. I plan on cutting and re-taping the bottom when it comes time to remove the lower potatoes.
