Yippee! I am so glad I found this. I just ordered my seed potatoes from Ronnigers. I'll keep an eye out for tips.

Thanks.

Potatoes, huh? So I guess that makes you a potato head?

So since this is a root crop can it grow all year for us, or are my summers too hot?

I'm just now planting out my potatoes. This is the first year for me and I'm growing them in large containers the DH made from some kind of sturdy non-wood pallets he rescued from his former workplace. I'm going to be using leaves and straw to grow them in.

Kennebecs, Red Norland, Purple Viking, and Banana Fingerlings. This is the first time I've ever tried growing potatoes and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out. We (the DH & I) are growing them in containers. There's about 6"-8' of dirt in the bottom of each container, cut seed potatoes, then about 4" or so more dirt on top of the potatoes. I've also topped the whole thing with a very, very, shallow covering of leaves just to add some insulation from the night temps. As the plants grow up, we'll add leaves and straw.

We have 2 different types of containers. This is one of the smaller ones prior to adding the top layer of soil.

Those taters shown in the picture above have SPROUTED!! Woohoo!! Hurray! I have about 4 sprouts all the way up and 1 almost up with the ground being pushed up. I'm so happy! Now if the other 2 containers would just sprout, I'd be in potato heaven.
