Carl Legge ( is a wonderful blogger and cook who’s book The Permaculture Kitchen I eagerly look forward to next year.  I just checked in on his site and noticed his plea for us all to help this small scale potato breeding company to develop a non-gm anti-blight spud.  I’m for it and am going to donate!   I think about potatoes a lot, in relation to carbohydrates and what we can realistically grow in various small-scale settings.  Of course we need LOTS of varieties of potatoes, and roots in general, and we need good practices of crop rotation.  But I’m interested in this project, and these potatoes, and wanted to share the info here.
