Potato Harvest and beyond. The potato has been a staple in many families food pantry for thousands of years. It’s one of the few crops that can feed the hungry and eliminate starvation.
The potato’s on the image I created. I only planted about 7 seed potato’s this year as a test of the yellow potato bought at local grocery store. And, I’m so happy to report that from those 7 plants I got about 30 lbs of potato’s.
To some that isn’t much but when you think about how easy there were to plant and the minimal cultivation I did, I was certainly impressed with the yield. And, being organic they tasted wonderful.
The cost of potatoes isn’t all that expensive when you consider you can buy a 5 lbs bag of potatoes for around $3.00. And, organic for around $5.00 per 5 lbs, approximately $1.00 per pound. So, I saved 30.00 because mine were organic.
It might not be much but each small bit you can save is a good thing.
