However, the importance of planting high quality seed is overlooked. In our 40 years of organic farming we've learned seed quality can vary widely. Sourcing the best Certified Seed Potatoes (https://www.woodprairie.com/category/the-organic-garden/) becomes a big factor in assuring overall success. Coupled with our popular 'Organic Potato Growing Guide' (https://woodprairie.com/downloads/Growing%20Guide.pdf) you will be well-armed for success in this year's potato patch. Caleb, Megan & Jim
"“What I say is that if a man really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.”
–A. A. Milne, English writer (1882–1956)…
"Dig potatoes on a dry day. Dig up gently, being careful not to puncture the tubers. Avoid cutting or bruising potato skin. Damaged potatoes will rot during storage and should be used as soon as possible."
