I have never grown potatoes before so I am very excited to be trying to do so now :). I can’t wait to make PK’s Baked Mashed Potato, Bacon and Cheese Balls with my own taters.
The tubers taste of “earthy, starchy, happy goodness” and can be prepared many ways :).
Warning: the green leaves and any potatoes that have green skins are highly toxic.
There are many varieties and everyone has a favourite.
I am a potato growing novice. I have chosen to grow them in hessian bags as I have a lack of space in my Working Garden.
I will add to the photos and information as we go. I hope to have a bunch of potatoes to show you and only a few with green skins.
These are the products I am using (not being paid to):
Store your potatoes in a cool, dark and dry location. A box or hessian bag is best.
Never ever use a potato that has a green skin (it is caused by the plant making chemicals to ward of insect attack) and you should throw them into your compost bin immediately so they don’t ruin the others.
