I keep a couple baked potatoes in the fridge. Cut half a one up and fry it in the morning, peel and all. Of I'll take a couple and make potato salad. I never boil a potato, it's just not right.

You are all aware that Idaho gets its seed potatoes from Montana, I hope.

Lake County grows the majority of those seed potatoes - big business for a handful of well-landed families in the Mission Valley.

We need a well landed family to adopt us so I can become a spoiled brat !
Oh crikey, I forgot I'm already a spoiled brat. I get to eat a plate of Cheese Enchiladas in a little while and watch an Allison Anders film.

Our parrot has been scolding the turkeys when they make the rounds. She needs to be the queen bird of the house and she has no qualms about letting us know all about it when the interlopers come calling.

Which is hilarious, because last time any numbers passed before my eyes, it was something like 60% of Idaho's potatoes go as seed potatoes!!

There are potato farms around Bozeman, too.

Of course the BEST potatoes are North Dakota reds.

It's something in the soil/weather/water conditions, more than the variety. Potatoes grown in CA are bland no matter what kind they are. I tried planting some from ND Reds (Costco gets 'em in once in a while) and they were just as blah as reds from CA commercial producers.

Boy howdy do I have to disagree on those points !

1 - Best for what, different potatoes are good for their different properties and uses.

2 - I grew russet baking potatoes in San Diego that were as good tasting to us as any grown in the so called potato states.

1) Sure, but some have more flavour than others regardless. Of course, tastes vary anyway... I probably taste awful

2) San Diego's climate is probably closer to that of ND than are CA's main row-crop areas. Commercial potato growers are mostly in the central valley. Growing 'em in S.D. is cheating.

I just posted a weather alert for Montana. It really doesn't explain what I'm seeing on the map. It covers, just about ALL of Montana and vary's from a minimum of 8 inches of snow and goes up to 20+ inches of snow around Red Lodge.

High winds. 35-45 MPH with gusts up to 65mph.

Rickers, you're already getting hit in your area, Billings by noon or shortly after, Seven, later this afternoon/evening.

Sub-Zero temps accompany this snow and wind.

Coffee's been on for over and hour, where's everybody at???

Snowing pretty hard, drifting snow, poor visibility and slick roads for Helena.

Temps dropped about 15 degrees from 10:00 last night. Been up since 5:00 stoking the wood stove.

Think I need some old Bushmills in the coffee this morning.

Ho....ho.....ho.......

Getting ready for a weather hit of our own down here! Heavy rain and then freezing temps for a night or two. Put christmas lights on my tomato plants (yes, I've got 'em growing right now) and getting ready to cover 'em with sheets.
Can't get this song outta my head... Oh christmas tomato,oh christmas tomato.....
