Growing your own potatoes means a whole host of benefits. First of all, they taste far better than store-bought ones, and if you’ve grown your own before you’ll already know this.
Second, you can keep them for a long time. When stored correctly, fresh potatoes will last for months and still taste better than their store-bought cousins.
Most commercially grown potatoes are doused with chemical pesticides and herbicides, and they are often a year old before even reaching the grocery store. Obviously when growing your own, you know exactly what goes into them and can avoid anything you don’t want.
