Seed potatoes — updated information

The Archuleta County Extension Office is taking orders for seed potatoes until the end of April.

There will be two kinds available, Sangre (red) and Yukon Gold (white). Currently we are charging 50 cents per pound for both species.

To those of you who are just starting out and are experimenting, it is our suggestion that you order two to three pounds of each species instead of ordering a whole lot of them. This way, you can experiment and see if you like them and then order more next year.

When orders arrive in mid-May at the Extension Office each person will be contacted to pick up their order.

If you are interested in ordering seed potatoes, call 264-2388 or stop by the Extension Office at the fairgrounds on U.S. 84.
