Planting and Growing Potatoes

If there is one vegetable in our garden our family can't do without, it's potatoes. Not unlike many other Americans, we love our potatoes. While I believe every home gardener should be able to grow potatoes, I would not consider them to be as easy as many other vegetables. The process of planting potatoes generally takes more time than most vegetables and they require a good deal of organic matter or fertilizer to be successful, not to mention dealing with the Colorado Potato Beetle.
