Early Bintje Potatoes Are Another “Just Great” Crop

My early potatoes are later than usual, but better late than never. This is a double segment size peri-urban site, (2,000 sq. ft.). that I will harvest this week. This crop should increase my market sales by 30%. I’ll sell them in 1 lb. bags using SPIN’s mix-and-match pricing  – $3.00 each, or 2/$5.00. The variety is called Bintje, probably one of the best tasting, so it is an easy sell.

I have other potato plantings that will come into play in August on other plots. In the back ground you see carrots and pumpkin/winter squash. Scare crow in the middle is me.
