Growing Potatoes in Buckets?

I am looking for the easiest and simplest way to grow potatoes, like in buckets. When are they planted? Then what? I heard about, keep adding soil to the plants. I am not understanding this.

I grow my potatoes in whatever container I can find. One year it was a large feed sack and a laundry basket. Both worked great. Though because the basket did not have tall sides on it, I had to insert cardboard pieces to increase the depth--that way I could keep adding soil as the plants grew. This way you get more potatoes, they will produce more because you have covered the growing stems and leaves with more soil. This year I'm using galvanized wash tubs, they're very big, but not tall, so again I will add my pieces of cardboard to build up the sides.

Check out these two blogs for everything you need to know about growing potatoes: 'A Garden For The House' and 'The Art of Doing Stuff'. Both of these blogs use great photos to explain the process and easy to understand. I think both have search boxes so you can find the potato growing posts on each blog.
