  • Spring break from teaching at U of L falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day and when I always plant out my seed potato for the year.
    While I always manage a mid-March planting, 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.
    Select potato varieties that compliment the way you cook. The most versatile varieties include favorites like Yukon Gold and Red Cloud.
