Now I Know I Have to Plant Potatoes this Year! Why?
I love potatoes. I have them regularly if not daily. When on a rush through an airport I always run for the french fries. They give me energy for the trip. Today I made potatoes, spinach and kale to go with my steak. I could not help but think of the many people that lived with that combination of food for dinner. Then as my Grandson says "my mind is thinking". I remembered there was a connection between potatoes and population growth.
Here is an article from the Smithsonian Magazine. How the Potato Changed the World .
After reading all of the health benefits I am glad I enjoy potatoes. When I read how they saved people from famines I decided I will definitely put some into a pot this year. I did it several years ago and had good results.
Now a shopping I go for some tubers! Judy
