What do 75 pounds of potatoes look like?




75 pounds of potatoes

This. These are Kennebecs and Pontiac Reds. I think I’m averaging about half a pound per square foot the “six inches of manure over tractor-packed clay” garden (250sf, fully harvested) and 1 lb per sf in the well-tended garden (50sf; currently half-harvested). So, a total of about 135 pounds of potatoes so far. That sounds like a ton, but I just wanted to show you that doesn’t really look like all that much…probably six milk crates, total.
