Potatoes For Your Semmes AL Garden

Potatoes For Your Garden

Regardless of how Al Gore spells them, potatoes are a popular food item all over the country. Potatoes are easy to grow. But before you run out to get your seed potatoes, let me tell you some of the things I have learned from experience – there are a few things you should know about planting potatoes. Do not plant potatoes too early, while the ground is still very cold. If the ground is too cold and wet, the seed potatoes will not sprout until things warm up a bit. Around Semmes this is usually early or mid March.
