Potatoes ( How To Grow Yukon Gold Potatoes )
The Yukon Gold is a good big potato to grow, and it is easy to grow, but just like everything else there are some things you need to know.
1. You can plant ( tubers whole ) or cut them into pieces with 2 or 3 eyes, after cutting, the size should be no bigger than a chicken egg, spread them out in a well ventilated place to dry 24 hours before planting. The eyes produce vines and roots. ( For the People out there that don't know what a tubers is, it is a Potatoes. )
3. Make sure to plant in ( Full Sun ) make your rows in a mound.
4. Make sure to plant with the eyes up, and only 2 to 3 inches deep, and 10 to 12 inches apart, rows 24 inches apart. Water well after planting.
5. Never let the soil dry completely out, you can add mulch to help hold in moisture, and the mulch will help to keep the weeds down.
