Potatoes are the classics at lunch. If you have a little space in the garden, you can also grow it yourself with little effort.
I love pasta and rice, but potatoes are undoubtedly the best side dish for some dishes. For even more intense taste, you just grow your potatoes yourself today. The video from "Neues vom Landei" shows that a huge potato harvest does not necessarily require a lot of space. That makes the process a lot easier, doesn't it?
The video article with a length of a good 11 minutes contains a lot of useful information about the preparation of the soil, the right time, the different varieties, the cultivation yourself, as well as helpful tips for harvesting. You will also be shown how to easily plant potatoes in a bucket.
If you have been flirting with buying your potatoes from your own garden for a long time, you should definitely watch the video.
My potato recommendation
Last year we also cultivated potatoes for the first time and achieved excellent results with the "Linda" variety. Allegedly a classic where you can't do much wrong. I had ordered the variety from the Pötschke shop.
Did you know?
Many think that the potato has a lot of carbohydrates and makes you fat. Not correct! Although it contains plenty of starch, it also contains many healthy minerals and vitamins. The fattener actually comes from the wrong preparation. Because, unlike many years ago, the potato is eaten with fried or floury sauces or enjoyed deep fried. That makes you fat.
By the way: You can recognize good potatoes by the fact that no water escapes when you press on a raw cut spot. In addition, the two halves of a raw sliced potato must stick together when rubbed together. At best, a little foam forms on the edge of the two halves.
