Re: POTATOES
Two Irish women were in the garden digging potatoes and one of the women hoisted a couple of very nice potatoes into the air and she tells her friend "these remind me of me husband's". Her friend said "that big"? She said "No, that dirty".

Re: POTATOES
Potatoes, my first year experience in growing them.

At first I just bought potatoes from the market and buried them in the soil with the corn and other crops, and waited and waited for months and they almost all rotted in the ground. Some 2 or 3 months wasted with that.

Next I learned to get the potatoes to start sprouting with roots and shoots in a shallow pan of water. Some of them take months before they sprout roots, and a few others rot in the pan, but with a whole lot of potatoes in the sprouting dish there are always a few that are ready to plant. I just use tiny potatoes to sprout with because the plants seem to grow just as fast anyhow.

So I got that far with my knowledge several months ago, planting the potatoes independently from the other plants because they grow so fast.

So I have had some locations planted with potato sprouts just a month and a half now, and they rapidly went to 2 - 3 foot tall plants in just a few weeks, flowered, and died.

I hadn't dug any up yet and I am all like "What the hell is wrong with my potato plants? Why are they dying after vigorous growth and only a month and a half of life? Some kind of fungus or rot?.

So this afternoon I dug up several suspect plants and there was a whole lot of potatoes down there. Imagine, a great multiplying of food in just a few months, when my other crops take 6 months or more sometimes. I see how potatoes could be a great basic survival crop, providing produce much quicker than other plants.

But the hitch is, is that that potato sprouts when it decides to, not when you want it to necessarily, so you need a strategy for that.

A lot of potatoes from the market have been sprayed to keep them from sprouting. That's probably why they rotted instead of sprouting. If you want them all the time just keep planting them all the time. Then it doesn't matter if some take longer than others. Plus the ones you grow and sprout will sprout better than the store bought ones because you haven't sprayed them. You can't grow too many.

Re: POTATOES
Another tip about potatoes as part of survival,

get a pressure cooker.

If there is no electricity or limited fuel supplies, or with simple firewood, a pressure cooker can cook things much faster and with less fuel than normal cooking.

In fact at high altitudes there are many foods that can only be cooked by pressure cooker.

Good points. I don't know how commercial growers get them to all sprout at once exactly, but for my process of a home garden it is just perfect to plant incrementally throughout the year.

But I start them out in the pan of water, because once they start sprouting their clock has started and they are fairly predictable, but just planted as is it is only predictable that most rot.

Most all of these potatoes that I buy here in this pueblo, are grown by small local growers and sold directly by them , but they don't like to chat about their methods, they are a particularly evasive bunch the potato growers, I don't know if they are treated or not, but some commercial growers use a lot of chemicals and others don't, and unless you know them personally....

Where I am at I have a continuous growing season, but I could imagine that someone in a freezing climate could grow potatoes in the winter too in a small greenhouse.

I am growing in rings from cut open tires in a totally hard-scaped courtyard, using my own special imported compost.

Re: POTATOES

 Quoting: Minnie Kitty

Gracias, food is so cheap here it does not make economic sense, and home gardening and cooking take up a lot more of my time than simple eating used to, but I have found that the lifestyle works with my economy, and I have always wanted to try living this way, so it's cool, but sometimes I sort of panic at transitioning from being a factory sort of person to being more of home gardening.

But then I noticed the other week that the price of eggs had doubled, and realized that my hens were a pretty good investment, although they need some daily care too.
