The best way to store your potatoes is in a cool, dark place. **Note: In the early summer when we have our new potatoes it is important to keep them in the fridge! The new potatoes are dug when the plants are still green and the skins are very tender.
Potatoes are one of our favorite things to grow. While we love to eat them all I think some of our favorites are Red Skin & Yukon Gold potatoes. Baked Sweet potatoes are also staple side dish for us this time of year. The Red, White & Blue potatoes are a must during the summer holidays!
