The Glory of New Potatoes

Do you find yourself wondering why people get excited about new potatoes? Or maybe you feel like you missed the memo and aren't sure what the difference is between a new potato and well, a potato? You aren't alone! I wondered the same thing when I started exploring fresh locally grown food options. I also wondered why they were more expensive. Sometimes farmers are so busy with our daily chores that we forget to pass on what we learn and why we do things a certain way, like pricing. While I can't address everything here, I do want to sing...
