Grow Your Own Potatoes!

Potatoes are one of the easiest vegetables to grow yourself. All they require is a nice sunny location in rich fertile soil. You can plant them from March to May and harvest them from July to October. You can grow white, red, and/or yellow varieties that are good for cooking, frying, boiling, or baking.

Here are some of the varieties that are available; Bintje, Caribe, Chieftan, Dakota Pearl, Kennebec, Norland, Pacific Russet, Russet Burbank, Warba, Red Pontiac, Sangre, and Yukon Gold. As well as the specialty varieties; Banana, and French Fingerling.
