Balcony gardening, obviously, has its limitations. But the limited room wants to be filled and its boundaries tested and overcome. Growing potatoes on the smallest balcony seems to be the right way to do this. Not because it is particularly difficult to grow potatoes in pots (clearly it is all too easy), but because when I think of potatoes I think of large fields with big chunks of soil as their natural habitat. Those three guys on the picture, however, grew in a pot of roughly 15 cm in diamter – and seemed to be perfectly happy with it.
