We grow potatoes in the permaculture chicken yard, in plots the chickens prepare for us. They weed the ground, fertilise, and clean the mulch of pests. All we have to do is push the potatoes into the mulch, cover them, and leave them to it. 2021 has been the biggest drought in decades, yet with only being watered three times all season, we’ve had a respectable yield using this method.
