Description

Before you plant your potatoes, make sure you have properly prepared your soil. A potato plant grows from a seed potato-each seed potato should have an eye. The eye of the potato is where it will begin to sprout- place the eye of the potato facing up. The ideal size for seed potatoes is slightly larger than a golf ball-if you have a seed potato that is larger than this simply cut it in half, ensuring that both pieces have an eye on it. Each potato will grow into a plant and produce multiple of potatoes.
To plant: Dig a trench that is 6 inches in depth. From here simply place a potato every 12 inches so that you have plenty of space for the potatoes to grow.

    I picked up my seed potatoes at Lester’s last year and they were the best crop harvested. Can’t remember what I had… some red….some yellow……. looking forward to getting my garden in again this year, at the cottage. 🙂
