How to Grow Your Own Potatoes

Want to save some money while giving yourself a large supply of potatoes for this delicious recipe and others? Grow your own potatoes! Growing your own potatoes does require work, space, and time, but it's totally worth it in the end. Follow our advice, and you'll have your own potato crop in no time at all.

Potatoes should be planted when the daytime temperate of the soil is around 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and the nighttime temperature is around 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The soil should be easy to work with; if it's very damp and sticky, let it dry out more before planting. Potatoes need well-drained soil to grow properly.

If you live in a cooler region, you'll want to plant your potatoes in early-to-mind April. If you live in a warmer region, you can plant your potatoes any time between September and February. We recommend planting earlier if you want potatoes in time for summer. To plant potatoes, you'll want to buy seed potatoes. Pop them free and lay them out in a bright area. After a month, you should have green sprouts!

Cut the potatoes into golf ball-sized chunks, each with one to two eyes (sprouts). Give them a couple of days to heal, so they're ready for planting. If your potatoes are smaller than an egg, don't cut them. Just plant them as-is. Dig holes six inches deep, about 16-18 inches apart. Put some slow-release fertilizer at the bottom of each hole.

Make sure you give your potatoes one to two inches of water every week. You'll also need to “hill up” your potatoes, which means covering them with soil so only the topmost leaves stick out. This is a crucial step to ensure your potatoes grow properly. Harvest before the first hard frost. If you want to store your potatoes for the long term, you'll need to keep them in a dark, cool place with a temperature around 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Otherwise, they'll sprout.
