Potatoes are some of the most versatile foods on the planet. Think of all the different types of potato dishes you know of, you have mashed potatoes, fries, baked potatoes, grilled potatoes, hash browns, poutine, and so much more. Potatoes can be used for any meal of the day too, you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and they can take on varying flavor profiles too. There are so many different types of potatoes too, including russet, red, white, yellow, blue/purple, fingerling and petite. Russet potatoes are the ones most commonly used for baking, frying, roasting or mashing. For mashed potatoes recipes you want a moister potato like the red potato or the white potato. Smaller potatoes are great for pan-fried or roasted potatoes recipes and have more of a robust flavor than the other larger varieties. If you want to try your hand at some vegetable gardening, potatoes are one of the easiest vegetables to grow, so it's a great thing to start out with in your garden. To plant potatoes you can simply take an organic potato and cut it into pieces so that each piece has an eye of the potato on it. The eyes are the little nubs all over the potato and this is where a new potato plant can sprout from. Plant them in the ground far enough apart and make hills over them so they can grow. When the time comes to harvest, you can dig in the soil to find your potatoes, clean them up and use them in any recipe you like.
