First Time Growing Potatoes
I always had this impression that growing potatoes took a lot of effort, boy was I wrong! Welcome to my first post about growing vegetables and my first attempt at potatoes. I can’t believe how much of a success it was!
Bunnings is where I purchased my seed potatoes. My partner works there so I got a sweet discount too. I just selected the first type of potato I could find as I had no idea what any of them were.
Once I got them home, I dug up the beds so the soil was nice and fluffy. Then I did a HECK of a lot of research about how to grow them properly. There were heaps of notes about planting them deep and then raising the soil level as they grew. I was about to go on a month long holiday so this was not an option for me.
I planted them out in the raised bed and a container as prescribed and left them to it. As you can see by the above picture and my below Youtube video, they both turned out to be a huge success!
On a side note, they lasted forever in the cupboard as well! It took them forever to go bad, actually, none of them went bad because we ate them all!
Leave me a comment below if you have any tips for growing potatoes, I would love to hear them!
I hope you enjoy watching the video I created for my Youtube Channel (took a few months to film) and get a great sense of satisfaction out of watching the harvest like I did. I can’t wait until potato season begins again and I can give it another go!
