apparently “dead nettle” helps keep potato bugs away.

good information in this article

Also, I was wondering…. not that this is a super-cool strategy but I’m just curious:
rather than putting the plant in a barrel and adding soil to it as it grows, getting more produce from the one plant, could you put the potato in a ground and as the plant grows bend it over and cover the stalk, making the plant grow horizontally and getting more produce from the one plant?
I know – might as well plant more than one potato—but I’m curious.
