    Works for me. Since it isn’t done, what size yoke do y’all need?

    Probably freezing what you can not eat within a couple of months is the best choice of all the storage methods.

    I have been on a carb free diet for years but I understand that other folks eat a lot of carbs when they are available. Two people eating two pounds of spuds, baked, boiled, smashed or fried each day will go through 100 pounds of potatoes before they can rot anyway.

    If you eat just one pound the supply will probably be gone within 2-3 months so you could keep them in any dry place out of the sunlight. Potatoes last a long time if you don't get them wet and sprout them, even then you can remove the sprouts and eat them anyway.

    #1 wife got mad at me on the second picking of green beans because I picked them and she wanted to do it.. She told me that I knew how much she likes to pick the green beans and I evidently deprived her of the joy associated with that task.... So, I did what any good husband would do... I stopped picking them. That was a couple of weeks ago.. Now I come in from the garden every day and say, "Green Beans are ready to be picked.... again...." I hope it's all fun...

    Thing is, she doesn't understand that if you leave even one bean on the bush to mature the bush stops producing.... we wouldn't want that. So, I go along and make sure all of the beans are picked. I water them every other day too.

    We'll have yellow squash by the end of the week. Still a few turnips. Broccoli is done for. Carrots are going strong still. Tomatoes and peppers are lagging, not sure why. Lima beans, purplehull peas, zucchini, kershaw, cucumbers and cantaloup and MORE green beans are all up. Red potatoes are ready to be dug.

    Turning out to be a pretty good year.

    I know we don't eat 300# of potatoes in a year.... Sweet potatoes maybe, otherwise, no...

    We gave away all but 5 pounds. I made some mashed potatoes. They’re great! The next morning I had potato cakes with apple sauce. They’re great too! Lol

    It's a mindset rebel. Name your pets. Not your livestock.

    They call it "depopulation", rebel.
    Another gutless euphemism is "harvesting". You'd think they were talking about corn or wheat not killing live creatures.
