In early August, you need to find in the cellar last year's potatoes. Desirable varieties are "Falensky", "Table", "Sedov", "Lorch", etc. Plant the tubers in a well-fertilized land, which is freed from early-shot vegetables. Let potatoes grow here until October, it will have time to blossom. Before the expected frosts, the tops should be cut to the soil level, so that it does not freeze. When the soil will freeze, cover the planting with a layer of leaves, leaves, peat, needles. Let the potatoes so winter. If there are big frosts in the winter, snow can be added to the site. In April-May, when the soil recovers and warms up, surprisingly everyone, you can dig up young, fresh potatoes. The taste of it, like the usual young potatoes harvested in June or July.

Implementation 500 kg on 30000 krb. was at that time 15000000 krb. or $ 385. And this is in the spring of 1994!
