growing your own ammo?

Unread postAuthor: Jeeperforlife » Thu Apr 17, 2008 9:05 am

We have seed potatos at work and were wondering if anybody ever grew there own? If so what kind makes the best kind of ammo? I have some extra space in the garden so I was thinking it could be fun.

I like doing things the hard way, and this way I can tell my customers how to grow them. Plus I will have first experience with them. I just don't think I will say what I use them for. :roll:

I've grown potatos before and they are a pain in the petunia. You'll want to plant them in mounds or mounded up rows. And unless you grow just a small amount of them, you'll want a motorized implement that can turn soil. Otherwise, you'll be hoeing them out of the ground from a 8" to 12" depth....gets old real fast.

Strawberrys are a great thing to have after they have grown on for about 3 years. But be carefull, they'll spread out into the yard.

im planning on taking video of myself planting spuds with my spudgun, shooting them into the garden dirt. this just seems the right way to plant and grow ammo. when they ripen i will shoot a few and fry a few. btw some of your corn cobs might make sweet ammo!
