Just a while ago I was reading about growing potatoes that way!

You plant up the first & when the potatoes are 8" high then you put another tyre on top of the first & fill it up with soil again. This method it seems can be done up to 4 tyres high. It seems the plants just keep pushing up to the light but produce potatoes in each new layer!

Good idea Balcony. I have the old washing machine on its back in the corner of the garden, and I grow potatoes in there. I can open and close the glass door too depending on the weather outside ! I took the electric motor out of it and will use it in the shed connected to a grindstone for sharpening my chisels!

Another set of tyres will be filled this morning Rich shall take more photos.

OK Kath I'll take a look at your new pics :-)
