Once again, I am proud to say that our potato crop lasted from March 2009 to March 2010. It’s time to start it all over again, thank goodness! I am really ready to get my hands in the soil, once it dries out a bit.
First things first: While I always shoot for a mid-March planting of selected seed potatoes, we must consider the condition of the soil. Don’t start digging if the soil is too wet. Be patient and only work once the soil is friable.
