POTATOESPotatoes are a vegetable that is also one of the most energy-giving foods there is. This is because of the starch and carbohydrates in potatoes. Potatoes are also a versatile food. This means they can be eaten many different ways. You can eat: boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, French fries and hash browns. They are a root crop. This means that the edible part of the plant is the part that grows under the dirt. In fact, it is VERY dangerous to eat the green tops of the potato plant or potato skins that are green. These things contain chemicals that are poisonous and toxic. It takes about 100 days after planting for potatoes to be ready to harvest. You harvest potatoes by digging them out of the ground. Now it's your turn to head over to the garden and dig up some potatoes!
