Green Potatoes and Sadness

The potatoes that I was so excited about growing all summer are rather green. Meaning, the skin is greenish. All of the research I've read online says that the green part is poisonous, and you shouldn't eat green potatoes. I peeled one the other day, but there was still a bit of green to it, and I decided not to take the chance. This supposedly happens when either the plant gets too much sun, or has extreme heat/cold. Well, 2 out of the 3 happened this summer, which is what I'm guessing caused this... but now I'm sad I can't eat any of the potatoes I grew. Guess next year I'll start a bit earlier, and put them more in the shade. :(
