One of the vegetables that I am going to plant next week at my farm is potatoes. I love to grow them because home-grown potatoes taste so good. Also, potatoes produce a lot of calories in a small amount of space.
Barbara Damrosch is a very good gardener who writes a column for the Washington Post. She has a post about getting an early start with potatoes by "chitting," or helping the potatoes to sprout indoors before you plant them out in the garden. I am going to try this next week.
