A Penchant for Gold

We all know diamonds are a girl’s best friend but diamonds are out of reach for me. The next best thing is Gold, Yukon Gold Potato that is …  They are good for baking, stir frying, and just about anything. I love the smooth texture and sweet taste.  It is also a good source of carbohydrates, fiber, Iron , Vitamin C and  NO fat!

It is best to start planting  potato when the weather is still cool…once the ground have thawed  , you can start working your  soil. There are numerous resources in University of Maryland Extension website. There is also an article previously written by Erica Smith. http://groweat.blogspot.com/2010/04/potato-planting-day.html#axzz2NYe7pAYc

Enjoy the Spring weather and jump start your gardening with potato.

  1. Planted two double rows of Pontiac (red) and Yukon Gold yesterday. Both are 11 feet long and should yield plenty of potatoes for the summer. If you would like to have some potatoes to store for the winter, buy extra now and refigerate until mid June when they can be planted for a fall crop. I find these fall potatoes store better in my basement with less sprouting over the winter.


  2. In case you are wondering about the picture…it is not a picture of a Yukon Gold Potato…but it is a pictire of an Idaho Potato 🙂
