Ouch you pitchforked them? What is your aging, storage process? Have not grown any since I was a little kid.

 

 

Got a passive wine cellar,  works perfect.  These will make it till Feb/March  then they sprout from the eyes and I plant those next yr

 

Yes pitch forked them.  Box left   ..the other box is pretty much un scathed .  They are also Yukon gold and I have some big ones this yr

Wow, so these were just harvested?  Ours don't do well in the heat of the summer.  Are they russets?

Shelby,

 

Yes I harvested them last week end/

Yukon golds

This is always the time I harvest them, and they make it most of the winter.

I never wash them, till i use them too

Thanks!  I'm going to remember this.  If they work up there like that for you, then they should down here for me.

This is more a farming thing than a gardening thing as such, but I thought some of you would find it interesting. I've seen reporting on other trials for a few years now, and it strikes me as a promising prospect.

I just saw this recipe from Food 52. I think I will try it and if I like it it may be the answer to the partially dried out cloves I have been discarding.  What do you do with your oldish garlic? Right before I harvest my new crop, the outermost cloves on the remaining heads in my pantry seem partially dried. Not moldy, no suspicious spots, just evenly tan and a little shriveled. I have been discarding them but perhaps this would be a good use.

That recipe looks like something I should try. I don't grow garlic myself, but I am guilty of overbuying at farmers' markets and then needing to do something with it.

Just amazing...

"Doug the ugly New Zealand potato could be world's biggest"

Quote

...“We couldn't believe it," Donna said. “It was just huge.”

And not exactly pretty. Donna describes its appearance as more of an ugly, mutant look.

But it's quite possibly the largest potato on record. When the couple lugged it into their garage and put it on their old set of scales, it weighed in at a remarkable 7.9 kilograms (17.4 pounds). That's equal to a couple of sacks of regular potatoes, or one small dog.

I peel and cut the nasty end off and then put those in foil with olive oil and roast them.  I usually purée them and freeze the paste.

 

Okanagancook for the win.
