Isn’t it wonderful when spring finally arrives and the ground is ready to work? I’m always so excited when my seed potatoes finally arrive months after placing the order – I’m ready to get them in the ground ASAP. But before you plant seed potatoes, there are a couple easy things you should do to maximize your harvest.
I started growing potatoes about five years ago and they have quickly become one of my favorite veggies to grow. They’re easy, they’re fun, and harvesting them is like going on a treasure hunt. I also feel like I get a big bang for my buck – conventional potatoes are very heavily treated with chemicals and are at the top of the dirty dozen list, so I prefer to buy organic potatoes. However, organic potatoes aren’t that easy to find and they’re expensive. Growing my own potatoes is a great option for me.
