Grow Your Own Ingredients: Red Potatoes
With so many tasty ways to enjoy, it is no wonder that potatoes are a staple for tasty side dishes and even make for tantalizing main courses.
While the recipe calls for red potatoes, other varieties can shine in this dish too. Russet Burbank, All Blue and Yukon Gold are all tasty when used in this greek potato recipe.
Seed potatoes can be purchased or saved from previous harvests. You can cut the seed potatoes for more potato plants just ensure that each piece has 2-3 eyes and allow the pieces to callus by leaving them overnight in a cool dry place.
Plant seed potatoes when soil temperatures are above 50°F by placing the pieces 6-8 inches deep with the eyes up and cut side down.
Potato plants will need a consistent water schedule to ensure there is adequate water in the root zone but be careful not to overwater as this can cause the potatoes to rot.
You will also need to “mound” or “hill” the potato plants after they have emerged by building up the soil around the base of the plant. This encourages growth and protects any potatoes growing near the surface.
Harvest potatoes when they are small “new” potatoes or once they have matured. Matured potatoes are generally ready for harvesting around 90 days after planting and will store better once matured.
When harvesting potatoes, make sure that you insert a spading fork or shovel 18 inches away from the plant to avoid stabbing the potatoes and gently loosen the soil.
Any special occasion or even weekday meal calls for the perfect side dish. Luckily, a hot pan of Smoked Greek Potatoes is always up to the task.
Elevating this tasty potato side-dish is simple with a Traeger or Camp Chef smoker from IFA. Stop by your local IFA Country Store for griller go-tos and start enjoying your own garden fresh potatoes or just add a little extra flavor to your favorite meals.
