Growing Potatoes for Fun and Flavor
Potatoes are pretty easy to grow and you don’t need a large garden plot to grow them. You may already be used to the idea of “container gardening.”
Growing tomatoes in a pot on your deck or enjoying small containers of herbs thriving on a windowsill are an experience many of us share.
If you can do that, you can also grow a crop of potatoes in a small space. Here are three fun ideas for growing potatoes that you and your family will enjoy:
Of course, if you have the space for a traditional garden, you can grow a large crop. Even with a large space you may be surprised to know the variety of ideas there are about how to grow potatoes.
A great “potato growing education” can be found in The Complete Book of Potatoes: What Every Grower and Gardener Needs to Know
Gurney's Seed and Nursery is our favorite place to get our seed potatoes and everything else we want for our vegetable and flower gardens.
Growing your own potatoes may seem like a lot of work for something that remains relatively cheap in the grocery store. While the fun of growing your own is part of the reason we do it, the flavor of new potatoes…boiled in their tender skins and flavored with a bit of butter and herbs…is worth it. You will rarely find delicate new potatoes in a store.
