25 August 2022 Harvest Yukon Gold​

Twenty pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes were harvested from 20 plants.The size was generally palm size and perfect samples with no hollow centers or insect damage. One was steamed and was perfect. The production was low but they had no care except planted 2 inches deep and a foot apart in the row. The row was not hilled and no potatoes appeared above ground.These stored in the root cellar will keep until about April 2023. I have a total of 42 pounds for Winter storage.

They sound like an excellent result for minimal effort, always pleasing when that works.

So glad you don't slurry them, that would be a step too far :)

Potatoes keep as long as they are in a basement cold room reaonably well. Creating slurry etc. is simply a method of preserving when other suitable methods don't exist. I prefer fresh but alas climate eliminates this choice.

Sorry, I couldn't resist that, though actually I am particularly fond of mashed potato. Wish I had somewhere properly cool like that, clamps are another lot of work.
