The following communication con-
tains a recipe for keeping potatoes
through the fall and winter, has been
successfully tried and can be highly
Dig your potatoes as soon as they
are fully matured. Do not allow them
to heat or sun-scald in the hot ground
and handle them carefully as you
would handle apples to put them
away. Dig when dry if possible and
hunt up some boxes that will hold
from 5 to 10 bushels each and put
some rock or old posts down to set the
boxes on, in the shade of some trees;
if possible a place where the syn can-
not shine on the boxes at any time, or
if you have no green shade to put the
boxes under, then an open hay shed
and shade the west so the afternoon
sun cannot reach the boxes. Then fill
your boxes with potatoes and cover
the top with about two feet of hay.
This is all, except to sort them in two
or three weeks to get any bad potatoes
which were damaged or worm-eaten
before putting away. All that are
sound will stay so and keep fine if you
keep the water out and the sun away
during hot weather. I have kept po-
tatoes this way two years and they
were fine until all were used up during
the winter. I now have twenty
bushels put away this week and wish
it was twenty times that amount, as
I don’t expect to lose ten per cent, of
