Years ago I stopped growing potatoes as my main starch crop and used the dirt for more expensive crops because it wasn't worth it. I would stock up on potatoes when they were put on a loss leader sale for Thanksgiving. For years they would go in sale 10# for $0.99. This year they were 10# for $5.00

Anyone else seeing this kind of jump? Is it just my little town grocery store or just potatoes?

I got them at Aldi's this week for $2.99. Don't know how long that will hold, but it was nice for a change.

Yes, I did stock up.

I saw a 10 pound bag at the grocery store a bit ago for $ 7.
Called a farmer and she had sold all her potatoes this year already.
I think she said just over 1 acre. And the other plot did not do well.

I finally bought a 50 pound bag of whites, culls for $ 17.00
Not holding well, so may have to use them faster than I wanted to.

I did plant some in a 4 by 8 ft raised bed this summer. Reds.
Got huge plants and small potatoes. We did have dry spells
this summer.
