Whenever a newbie gardener asks me what they should plant in their first garden, I always recommend planting potatoes.
Dig a hole, toss in a seed potato, give it a little water, and come fall you’ll have 5 to 10 more than you planted. Growing potatoes is really that simple.
Choosing which variety of potatoes to grow is something else entirely.
