Planting Potatoes

I'm trying 'Red Norland' potatoes this year and I'm actually using certified seed potatoes rather than grocery store potatoes. While the grocery store potato technique worked just fine two years ago, last year my 'All Blues' were really scabby and inedible (even when grown in a brand new bed that had never seed a potato before). Hopefully this year will be better. I know I"m still spacing they way to close together, but that's just how I tend to do everything.

Are you growing potatoes this year? What kind?

  1. I'm planting potatoes for the first time this season - exciting! I picked up some organic 'Innovator' and 'Russian Blue' seed potatoes, as well as a handful of french Fingerlings. Can't wait!

    By the way, I just found your blog - loving it! Cheers!
