recalling that when Saint Patrick returned to Eire so he
might preach the word there were no Potatoes in Europe.
And too there were probably no Potatoes in this part of
Kentucky so quite why a gardener should plant his Potato
on Saint Patrick's day, I've got no clue
The problem, as
I see it, flows from Potato growing season here where I
live. They don't like it too hot, and heat comes here
quickly which means that a Potato planted in the middle of
April does struggle by middle of June. So it's all down to
what kind of Spring a gardener thinks might be possible.
Let's hope for long days and cold rains through the end of
March well into April and if there is to be frost let's hope
