    I've been reading about seeding straight to the garden and am ready to put my seeds down tonight. I've been wanting to get out there a few weeks ago but haven't been able to find the time between rain showers to avoid the mud. I've already ordered my potato sets but they haven't arrived yet...

    After two years in use, I thought I could finally write an informed thread about my root cellar. Why and how it was built, what I'd do differently if I built it today, etc. Plus, I wanted to get it out of the way before I dove into the next renovative project. My main goal for the cellar was...

    The potatoes were planted March 1st. Here we are three weeks later and the potatoes are starting to break through the soil. This is one of my favorite times after planting, is seeing the first sprouts break through the soil. When the cuttings were planted, they were not planted in a mound...

    Lets make a potato planting thread to help people who considering getting started. There are a lot of different ways to grow potatoes, such as in hay, tires, a box, and in the ground. Personally, I grow my potatoes in the ground. Not only are potatoes easy to grow, but they also store well...

    http://i1062.photobucket.com/albums/t498/bdcermd/th_garden3.jpg My first attempt at growing potatoes has left me a bit perplexed. They were growing nicely until about a week ago, then began to dry up. I figured this was the time to go ahead and harvest. Pulled up about 30 # of spuds today...

    Our potatoes have started to come out but they seem to be too thin. They grow long and fast but soon are too long and thin that they cannot support themselves and die. I lost my first attempt and this is our second :(. The photo shows how tall some of them are and it shows quite a few which...

    I have no clue how I found this site, linking from one site to another most likely, but it looks interesting. Has anyone tried it? I have a limited garden area and would love to be able to grow this many potatoes. TIA

    This might be a stupid question, but is there anyway to encourage eye growth on potatoes? This is my first year growing them, so I got some from gurneys. They came last week, but not many of them have eyes. I'm assuming that most, if not all of them, will eventually have eyes, and am...

    My kids and I got together and planted the first of the potatoes. The ground has not been worked in about 2 years, so it had to be broken up. Plus, the rain started coming down. So we only got one row planted. We tilled up a couple of rows about 60 feet long, spread some 10-20-10 fertilizer...

    A couple of weeks ago my wife and I went by the local feed and fertilizer store and picked up some potatoes. Today I cut them up, put them on some card board and plan on planting them tomorrow.

    I just harvested quite a bit of purple potatoes from my garden. They were probably one of the easiest plants I have ever grown. Supposedly, the purple variety is packed with more nutrients, anti-oxidants, and other good stuff. Potatoes are a very energy dense food and they store very well...

    I received this question off youtube. My opinion: How big of an area you need, is just as important as how fertile your soil is. One factor compounds the other, one factor either helps or defeats the other. Lets say you have good rich, fertile soil, then you need less land. Lets say you...

    Digging up Potatoes As crazy as it sounds, some people have never dug up potatoes. Years ago, this was a common practice on farms, where most of the familes food came straight from the garden. Digging potatoes is a simple straight forward thing to do, you just dig them up. Usually, the...
