  • Select potato variety while waiting for soil to dry out

    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.
