It’s time to plant potatoes in south Louisiana. We don’t have much winter here, and February is usually the last of it.
Marty tilled up my garden spot, where we did have lettuce and carrots. Then he made 5 rows, each 45 ft long.
We purchase seed potatoes from our local co-op/farm supply store. They are treated with a drying agent to prevent rot. That can be a problem in our moist soil.
We planted about 10 days ago, giving each plant 12 inches of space. We should begin to see sprigs of green in a few more days.
