Growing Potatoes- The Easy Way!

in #life6 months ago

I’ve been working extensively on my vegetable and herb garden these past months and although it’s not a new process for me, I have definitely learned a lot through trial and error.

I save seeds from every crop. I try to buy heirloom seeds and not any GMO tainted varieties of vegetables or herbs. If you’ve ever bit into a tomato, or any other home grown vegetable, fruit or herb, you will notice the difference in flavor, texture and smell.
But I’ve heard here and there that it’s become harder and harder to find seeds locally. A lot of states, such as Michigan, have banned the sale of seeds. Although this is extremely concerning, where there’s a will there’s a way and you’ll realize plenty of things to grow can be found in your pantry or fridge. Dried beans, lentils even some popcorn can be grown straight from the grocery bag to the dirt!

One of my favorite items to grow from my pantry is potatoes! You know those little wrinkled ones that start growing alien tentacles at the bottom of the bin? Yup those! And you can’t even imagine how easy they are to grow!

Don’t believe me?
Take a look!

After you follow these simple instructions and you notice your plant beginS to yellow (in 10-12 weeks), stop watering it and once the plant is completely dead you can harvest your potatoes! You should have at least 10 tubers per plant! Let them cure for 1 week or 2 by storing them in a dry, dark and cool place. Cook and enjoy!

Happy gardening!

Yeah it's similar way to the way we do it here. This process is really easy but we have to sure to grab some insecticide or else they will waste the corps. Love from India

Thank you for stopping by! The only pest we get here are cabbage loopers :( It's so hard to grow anything from the brassicas family without spraying.

Oh that's hard for the farmers.

Hi there friend, hope all is going well in your life. Have often thought of you and our “gal pal” googley 👀eyes, her never ending risqué adventures!
We’re in the midst of moving back to Texas (long story, priorities changed), we sold the Florida house. Just wanted to go home to spend our retirement years in familiar surroundings.

Hoping to be more active here once I get settled. Are you still living by the sea driving guys crazy😉 LOL

Much love❤️
