My older brother who gardens in Billings, MT once told me that he generally doesn't plant vegetables that he can purchase from the grocery store for about a dollar. He still grows corn, so I guess he doesn't always practice what he says. No criticism of my brother, but I grew potatoes successfully in Smart Pots this year. Yep, potatoes don't cost much, but as they say in the garden world...there's nothing like home grown. I'll let you know how these blue gems taste next posting, they'll be on the plate next to grilled salmon later today!
