I sit in my shop where it is cool with the big fan moving air. Got the radio on classic rock station. While a batch is in the pressure cooker, I peel another batch.
Keep some cold beer in the shop fridge and if I get tired of peeling, I wait a few days and go back at it.
My wife helps me more since she retired.
I enjoy it and it gives us a good felling we have plenty to eat on the shelves.

My once-upon-a-time potato patch is now "tilled" on a regular basis with a riding lawnmower. LOL One of life's challenges is to be able to make this adjustment when the time comes.

When growing up, one of our food staples was mom's thick sliced home grown potatoes fried in bacon grease. Very tasty!!! Small holes were ignored!!!. We worked off all those calories.

@ScottNC

We keep out taters in a cool place, like the farmers do, tell they process them. 35-40 degrees, but I have had them as high as 50, and still went almost too April, some were rooting but still good.
Some we use for seed

Does this count? We actually don't grow commercial potatoes anymore. Quit back in 2006, grew red norlands, Pontiacs, lasodas, and my favorite the red Viking. Still plant 8 rows in the garden every year but they're only 60 feet long.

Hello Dan,

I love those Yukon Golds! Almost don't need any butter, notice I said almost. You must have a lot of ambition attending to that many potatoes. My rows are much shorter-and a lot weedier LOL Did Case ever make a potato digger? Don

Yep, it is sad that a lot of us don't live closer to each other.

Thanks Tom, I'm fortunate this year, as the potatoes came through.

I have wanted a little place like I have all my life, my Dad sold (years ago) a "DC" I had bought 40 years ago, cause he said you don't want one of those, and today I have one and would never sell.
I love the honest exercise Don I get from having the garden, or like the Mrs. says this isn't a garden, its a farm! HeHe.



I cant remember, but will have to research the Case digger, I have a 1941 sales book, I will look through it and post Don

Ron, my Mother would also did this and it was very good, and those eggs fried in the bacon grease yum! And yes, we did work it off, and it was a long day. But those long hours never hurt us a bit!
