  1. Nice suggestion! When we went a year without income we lived on potatoes from the garden for the LONGEST time! I related with the folks of old in the Irish Potato famine! This book would have come in handy…then, but who knows, the future may rely on the versatile potato!

    1. Donna, I’m glad the potatoes were there for you and your family. I have ancestors on my mother’s side of the family who came to the U.S. during the time of the potato famine in the 1800’s. I’m sure there are many others who can make a similar claim.
