Planting Potatoes

The beds in my vegetable garden are filling up quickly and right on schedule.

Last week, we planted four long beds of potatoes. Potatoes are grown from “seed potatoes”, which are certified disease-free and specially grown in nurseries for planting purposes. Most potato varieties take at least 10-weeks to produce tubers large enough to eat. This season’s “seed potatoes” came from Irish Eyes Garden Seeds, a small family-owned business located in Ellensburg, Washington.
