This was our first year growing potatoes. I don’t know why potatoes seem like such a mysterious thing to grow. Maybe because all the growing magic is taking place underground, in a pile of dirt, and it’s a leap of faith to even believe that somewhere under there, lots of little potatoes really are growing?
Seriously, potatoes turned out to be laughably easy to grow, albeit a little counterintuitive. Put the plant in the ground. Periodically pile more dirt on top of the plant. It likes it. (!) Root around in the dirt a few months later, and there’s your potatoes.
What goes nicely with potatoes? Bell peppers.
