I wonder what everyone’s thoughts are about creating a subsistence potato culture in this climate. What would be some defining attributes? What fits our climate patterns? What would make a reliable staple?
Irrigated or dry farmed? Would low dormancy potatoes have a place as a reliable staple? Would there always be a spot for seedling (TPS) potatoes each year to keep genetics and disease resistance changing? Would you be able to eat potatoes year round?
Right now I have too many questions to make my own framework, but I hope some of you that live in this area can chime in with how you grow for your family or community.
