Today we ordered our seed potatoes for next year.
It really makes the season seem like it is coming fast to be starting seeds and ordering major items like hundreds of pounds of potatoes. With luck (and good management) we should have a yield of a more then a couple tons, and that is a lot of potatoes.
It is also strange to be ordering items in quantities like hundreds of pounds, but 500 pounds of seed spuds is what we will be planting this year.
But to keep that in context it still costs less for 500 pounds of seed potatoes then one ounce of the cheery tomato seed we will be planting this year. Thankfully, we only have to buy 25o seeds, at about 10 cents a seed.
