Plant potatoes in traditional or raised beds with grocery store seed potatoes. All potatoes, including Russet, prefer cool weather. Practice hilling by adding a few inches of soil as plants grow, and avoid Colorado potato beetles to enjoy delicious new potatoes any time. #when #plant #potatoes Gardening, Growing Vegetables, Plants, Tubers, Fingerling Potatoes, New Potato, Organic Plants, Types Of Soil, Growing Potatoes
