Tom dug these organic Yukon Gem potatoes from our garden yesterday after unusually cold weather for us (30′s). They were delicious as scalloped potatoes. My favorite local source of potatoes for planting is Irish Eyes Garden Seeds (www.irisheyesgardenseeds.com) from Ellensburg, Washington. They have a rigorous planting and inspection system in concert with the University of Idaho that ensures the tubers are disease and virus free. The hardest part of raising potatoes for my very thrifty husband is throwing away the volunteer plants that show up in the spring from potatoes we didn’t find when we harvested them. But the volunteers must go! Otherwise they foster blight and scab that infects not only the new crop of potatoes but tomatoes as well.
