Growing Potatoes
For a good overview of planting and caring for potatoes in the home garden, as well as an excellent recipe for new potatoes, visit this Potato page of the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension Service Web site.


The Potato Garden
The Potato Garden (Harmony, 1993), by yours truly, is no longer in print but easily obtainable through online used-book sources for practically a song (95 cents plus shipping). It describes over 200 potato varieties, both white and sweet potatoes, plus it has potato history and loads of information about growing, harvesting, and storing potatoes.
