Seed Potatoes

Having acquired some freshly picked potatoes from a friend (around 1000) we laid them out yesterday to air for a day or so ready to store them in our basement (dry and frost free).  Unfortunately the rain came last night and kindly gave them a wash, it was not in my plan, but obviously the nature had other ideas 🙂 so it seems they will be out a little longer as I would like them to dry off before storing them.

We will bring them out early next year to sprout a few weeks before planting them into our potato patch around the Earthship site.
