Can you do spaghetti squash just like the potatoes in the video?

With this method, do the potatoes need to be covered with additional straw or compost/soil throughout the season as they grow? I’m excited to try this!

Melody, I think you do need to make sure that there is more straw or compost added so as the potatoes develop, they are covered and not exposed to light.

Debbie, spaghetti squash are vining, so they will grow out and over the sides of the geo bin. But you can apply this method of growing to any vegetable, it is a type of permaculture method. Using a geobin for growing is really best for growing potatoes.
