The instructions are fairly simple. You prep the bale by soaking it with water and compost over the course of ten days, you plant the potatoes, and then you just let it sit until you're ready to harvest. Straw retains moisture, so all you'll have to do is check and water the bale occasionally to keep it from drying out. You can harvest early for tender new potatoes, or just before the first frost for larger tubers.
