THIS & THAT - yield, pickup, storage, etc.
* 1 lb seed = 5 to 10 lbs harvested potatoes
* Average family of 4 will eat 40-100 lbs of potatoes per year, requiring approx 5 to 20 lbs of seed
PICKUP: Potatoes will be available for pickup in ROBERTS CREEK (right in town near the Legion). Address and details will be sent by email when your order is confirmed.
STORAGE: Store potatoes in a cool dry place. They will keep at room temperature for up to two weeks and all winter when stored in cooler temperatures - ideally 5 degrees celcius, in paper or cardboard (basement, garage or cold cellar work great).
* Do not store in the refrigerator. COLD temperatures will convert the starches into sugar and the potato will become sweet and turn a dark color when cooked. It is also suggested that potatoes not be stored with onions as the gas given off by onions accelerates the decay of potatoes.
ORDERS WILL BE CONFIRMED STARTING MONDAY, MARCH 16
