We finally chose six new varieties to try this year along with our tried and true Yukons and Whites. Marcus has informed us that once we try this different yellow flesh, we may never go back to a Yukon again! Hmm, we'll see! This is a Red/Gold variety we are very excited about. We needed a good red potato and this one has brilliant red skin and bright yellow flesh.
Russian Blue....suppose to stay purple when cooked....I will be making a wicked potato salad with these puppies this year!!!
Russian Banana Fingerling. I've wanted to grow fingerlings, so I am excited about these guys. Not only do we have this type, but also a red/gold fingerling too!! Also another
While in Grand Bend at Marcus's farm I once again had this amazing feeling that Ben and I are in the right business. Both our faces totally lit up at the site of all the massive totes holding all these awesome seed potatoes ripe for the picking and planting! We are lucky to connect with other farmer's such as Marcus Koenig and his wife. Despite the fact that we were 5 minutes from the lake and beauty of Grand Bend, we didn't holiday.....back on the highway to head home and put these suckers in the ground!
