Just wondering if potatoes will grow in the local climate and soil conditions? Anyone had any luck? If so, what varieties did you plant? Thanks in advance for any information.

We grew some last year, they were kind of small--but maybe we just harvested them too soon. As for variety, we just planted some from the grocery store that were sprouting in the refrigerator :-)

My neighbor grows them all the time, but I don't have any info - they looked pretty good - I just grow flowers!

Call the extension agent in your county that works with horticulture - they can probably give you some pointers. I imagine it varies based on soil type, which varies quite a bit in eastern NC! Good luck
