Q: My husband and I grow our own potatoes. This year it's Yukon Gold and red potatoes. Why do the new potatoes explode when we cook them? It doesn't matter what variety; they explode. If I get them from the store they don't do that.

Editor: Readers, any idea why these home-grown potatoes are exploding?

Next question?
