POTATOES
    

POTATO CULTURE AND PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS


A lot of people say potatoes need to be planted on March 17th but potatoes can be planted as soon as ground can be worked, planted in greenhouses or you can even plant them in containers and bags. You can harvest them for baby tubers or let them grow to full maturity for larger tubers.  We usually plant potatoes anywhere from 6 to 12 inches apart, in rows about 3 feet apart, to allow easy tilling and care.  A 2 1/2 pound bag will usually plant a 20 to 25 foot row.  The 5 pound bag will usually plant a 40 to 50 foot row.
