Once my freezer is full, everything is going to local Food Bank. Have wanted to do this for many years, grow for the needy.
200 pounds in, how many pounds out? We should have a lottery for closest answer, assuming I was going to weigh it all...
if I get 10x returns, that's a ton of potatoes, literally and figuratively!
I would never do anything to this scale if the very nice head of the local Food Bank did not tell me Drew you grow it, we'll eat it, and better...
give us a few days notice, and we'll get volunteers in to help pick the corn and potatoes. That was my green light to have some fun.
That's a great gesture that should be a lot of fun. We used to do similar.
Some fertilizer and weed control will really up the yield. Lack of it will reduce the yield.
