Spring break from teaching at UofL falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.
I typically manage a mid-March planting, but the condition of the soil has held me up a bit this year.
I will not start digging until the soil dries out and is considered workable.
While we wait for that, select potato varieties that complement the way you cook.
