Hunt County Master Gardener Byron Chitwood of Greenville says it's time to plant potatoes.  Byron recommends planting red, or "new," potatoes, because other varieties are readily available and at a low cost in supermarkets.  He says red potatoes grow well here in the spring.  Byron says for other more delicate spring crops it's best to wait until after the average last frost around March 20 to plant.
