Potato portioning

How many potatoes do I need, really? This year I decided to be proactive.  I counted the number of weeks between now and the end of February, when the remaining potatoes become too sprouty to use.  Then, I divided the potatoes up.  Each bag holds two pounds of potatoes and is clearly marked with the variety.  I have set aside my lot and the rest I can hand out to friends, my fellow potato grower and random passers-by.

Great idea! That reminds me of my childhood, when the neighborhood gardeners were always trying to get rid of their abundance of zucchini. :)
