... in the cold rain before a deep freeze when sick isn't fun. It really doesn't make financial sense to grow them because they are so cheap in the store, but I know they are 100% pesticide free as well as zero carbon footprint to get them here- not to mention THEY ARE A PRODUCT OF MY TOIL, and that has an immense value to me. Hash browns in the morning using my own home grown potatoes is really cool, one just can't put a price on that. Thanksgiving dinner with my very own potato skins- super cool, more people should do it.
In spring I planted them in 4" wide holes that minimized crop output
Hard to do in the rain when sick. I have three more crops of different taters then the kale then thats it for the year.
Washed, ready for storage, this is half the crop. Probably ten dollars worth. Not sensical if all you care about is financial logic.
