This is the first year that I made an effort to grow potatoes for the year. In the past I've planted grocery store potatoes in pots (failure) and 2 years ago there were seed potatoes bought on a whim (failure). This year I decided to go all out. The year started with me buying a ridiculous amount of seed potatoes. When I realized my error, most of them were given away to other gardening friends. This is what I ended up with.
A few notes on planting and storage. All of these potatoes were planted on April 21st. I planted them in beds amended with aged chicken manure and nothing else. They were planted about 3 inches deep and then hilled once up to a depth of about 8 inches. All were harvested in September despite many of them dying back significantly earlier. A few had been snuck out for us to eat throughout the summer. They are being stored in cardboard boxes in my basement. The temp is currently 50 degrees with 60 percent humidity right now. We are loving having all these potatoes for meals.
