At planting time I planned on only growing 10 pounds each of Yukon and red potatoes. The place I purchased them from only had a 5 pound bag of Yukon potatoes, but they had a white variety. Hmmmmm....what to do. So I purchased 5 pounds of Yukon, 10 pounds of Red Norland and 5 pounds of Superior White potatoes.
To date I have completely harvested the Yukon gold. Yield......38 pounds. Is that good or bad? For me that's great considering last year I planted 5 pounds of Yukon potatoes and got about 3 potatoes back. The rest died. I don't know why, sadly.
I have also pulled about 4 plants of the reds and 2 plants of whites. Yields so far are 8 pounds of red and just under 6 pounds of white. But the reds were pulled before the plants died back so they were a little early.
I canned my Yukons. I tried last year to store potatoes in my basement. What a joke...those stinkers just started sprouting. Ugh! So this year I canned them. I plan on canning the rest and giving some away to neighbors and maybe trying to dehydrate some for later use as well.
I canned approximately 25 pounds of potatoes give or take and after removing bad spots and blemishes the yield was 17 pints and 5 quarts of canned potatoes.
And I couldn't resist this morning. I made potatoes and onions for breakfast. Wow! Way better than you get at any store..... One more reason to grow your own!
