For the benefit of new vegetable gardeners who are planting potatoes for the first time, this is what they look like when they pop out of the ground.
My Siamese cat’s foot is in the upper left corner of the photo to demonstrate that these are newly sprouted potatoes, just barely an inch out of the ground.
One bag of Yukon gold seed potatoes from Wal-Mart will plant three-quarters of a 50 foot row. Planted March 15, they will be ready to harvest in 90 days.
