Growing potatoesToday, I looked closely at my Master Garden Calender and it states the following for March 22, 2012

“Start planting potatoes now into April if weather permits. Avoid planting in muddy soil”

Are you familiar with planting potatoes? I really like this video demonstration. Doug Smiddy

  • Plant with cut side down and eyes facing up!  (It is amazing how many people do not know about this step)
  • Make sure you give your plants plenty of room to grow too.

The video does a great job of going through the basics.

For fun, I thought this video was great. Check out the process of growing Oklahoma Potatoes

Potato season begins March 22nd. If the weather is nice, it may be a good time to start your potato crop.
