Potatoes are one of the easiest things AND most satisfying things to grow in your garden. They are also really versatile and can grow in the worst of soils and EVEN tolerate some shade!
Plant a seed potato (or cuttings) and within weeks they send up stems and leaves, become established plants and then begin growing more potatoes underground. Pinch off all flowers to send energy underground to the tubers.
Once the leaves and stems die back, it is time to harvest those spuds! Digging potatoes out of soil has always been a favorite kid (and adult!) activity at the farm. "Seed potatoes" are potatoes that are ready to plant. This year, we are happy to offer certified organic potatoes from Fedco in Maine and High Mowing Seeds in Vermont. *
You can grow potatoes in many places! In buckets, grow bags, raised beds, in the ground, old baskets, etc. They even tolerate some shade. Have I mentioned we love growing potatoes?

* While we anticipate all seed potato orders will arrive in the spring, sometimes crop or storage problems at the supplier end will occur and we may not receive the anticipated products. Fingers crossed, as always....
