Potato Storage Experiment

These potatoes were left in our unheated clay basement for the winter to see how they would survive. I was quite surprised that they lasted as long as they did. The Red Norland seemed to sprout the worst, the Fabula's held up really well with little to no sprouting. The True Blues also did really well.

It seems our growing season keeps getting pushed back, we had strong winds and blowing snow today. Good news is week end they are calling for +10 degrees, how exciting. I'm sure spring weather must be just around the corner.
