Time To Plant Potatoes Now In Our Area!

Granddaddy Goodson

Today's post is about planting potatoes.

I no longer have this sweet wise man to guide me in gardening.  He was such a wonderful dear grandfather and one of the reasons this lady lives out in the country.  Goodson, as they called him could grow anything from a little of nothing and make it flourish.  They always had enough to store for the household, share with the entire neighborhood, and sometimes make a little profit in sharecropping. I miss him and his farming knowledge so I now go to the next best thing!  Thanks, Clemson!

This post is one for quick reference in gardening in our zone here in South Carolina. I hope it will be helpful for you as well.
