I was lucky and found some food grade plastic 55gal drums for a giveaway price.I'm going to halve them and grow my potatoes in them.I should be able to get some reasonable production with those I should think.I guess I will find out.

Like rxkieth,I would also like to try some of Tom Wagners Skagit Valley variety,but have no idea in the world how to find any to plant.

Contact Curzio at KPP, he might have some to sell.
