Potatoes are the the second most consumed item in the united states. So every gardener should grow a small batch in the garden.
This is my first year growing and I planted a 4 ft by 18 ft section which held 20 potatoes "seeds". I don't know what I expect as a harvest or how to harvest them exactly. All I know is I am excited.
I planted Red Pontiac Potatoes
80-100 days till maturity
First batch was planted Jan 5th (only 5 came up)~ Harvest April 5th, second batch was planted March 5th (to fill in empty areas)~ Harvest June 5th
Also at the start of April I get sweet potato starts to plant out front!!
YAY for potatoes... And a brand new Barnhop!! :)
