Potatoes for Fall Crop
I'm a complete novice when it comes to growing white potatoes. I've been researching this online and can't seem to find much information on fall planting. Why are potatoes planted only in the Spring? If possible/reasonable, I'd like to plant and harvest in the fall, not overwinter. I'm in Georgia zone 7B. Would it be possible to plant an early, heat resistant variety and actually get a good harvest? I have a few experimental seed potatoes. These would be planted in say ?? early September ?? September temps average 81/64, October temps average 72/51, our first frost is usually early November, with November and December temps around 60/40.
Oh, and what about planting now? If fall planting is a bad idea, can they be planted in June or July in zone 7b? Thanks!
