For the young woman I met in the archives today, here is a listing of the blog postings re: Potatoes, both Native and imported
Sunday, August 14th, 2011 -- Potatoes at Fort Alexandria
Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 -- Indian Potatoes and other Native foods
I have a little more information to add to this potato-project which I will post sometime in the near future.
It might be a perfect project for this weekend -- after all, my great great grandfather James Birnie was the man who planted the first potatoes at Fort Colvile.
