Living off the Land: Growing potatoes at home

Lance Ellis

Growing potatoes in the home garden is fun and easy, and gives gardeners a chance to try varieties they might not find in the grocery store. Have you ever wanted to grow blue- or red-flesh potatoes? Fingerling potatoes? Potatoes with purple skin? These specialty types, along with the reliable standbys like the Russet Burbank or Yukon Gold can all be grown successfully in the home garden.
