It’s time to plant potatoes! Here are some planting tips for a great crop of home-grown spuds…
In some parts of the world, Saint Patrick’s Day is traditionally known as potato-planting time! Depending on where you’re gardening, your planting dates may vary. For example, here in Ohio, we typically plant anywhere from late March through early April, depending on the weather.
As with so many other vegetables, the flavor of home-grown potatoes can’t be beat. (After experiencing ours for the first time, my husband exclaimed, “I never knew potatoes had flavor!”)
In my opinion, potatoes are one of the easiest vegetables to grow, and the fact that they keep well for several months into the winter is just another good reason to add them to your garden lineup. (We grow ours in hay bales, which makes them not only easy to grow, but easy to harvest as well!)
This short video discusses how to plant and harvest potatoes of your very own from your backyard garden.
