It’s been potato mania on my homestead lately. I’ve been buying a lot of potatoes the past two weeks because I’ve been getting some decent deals, so there have been quite a few meals with potatoes on the plate. I’ve had dozens of seed potatoes growing eyes in paper bags in my kitchen – potatoes I’ll be planting this weekend. With all these potatoes on my mind — and because it’s potato planting season in Zone 8 – I thought this was a good time to Spotlight potatoes.
I know gardeners and farmers are supposed to be patient, but sometimes I just can’t stand the suspense any longer. I just HAD to harvest one of my potato buckets the other day. How to harvest potatoes!
