the potato conspiracy
The potato conspiracy
  • What organic church planters can learn from the potato
  • Or: the basics of organic gardening
some basic potato facts
Some basic potato-facts
  • The fourth most important source of food energy in the world
  • Originally from Peru, imported into Europe through Spain (‘patata’)
  • One progenitor (original), but thousands of different varieties
the advantages of the potato
The advantages of the potato
  • Easier to grow than other staple crops
  • Produces more food energy than any other European crop for the same area of land
  • Only a shovel is needed for harvesting
  • The only crop unaffected by war(the 30 Years War stimulated potato growth in Germany)
the advantages of the potato 2
The advantages of the potato (2)
  • Not the outside (lack of) beauty matters, but the inside quality
  • They are simple and not self-promoting
  • They form an underground conspiracy of multiplication
the potato is a tough one
The potato is a tough one
  • You can boil him
  • Bake him
  • Roast him
  • Cut him into pieces
  • And smash him

So potatoes are ‘persecution proof’

how to grow potatoes
How to grow potatoes
  • Turn the soil and remove rocks and weeds
  • Just plant a piece of a potato with at least one ‘eye’
  • Plant them in rows or circles (relationally connected)
  • The closer together, the smaller the fruit;the further apart, the bigger
  • Add ‘organic matter’ to the soil
how to grow potatoes 2
How to grow potatoes (2)
  • The plant channels excess sunshine energy to the tubers
  • Flowering is a sign that something is definitely happening underground
  • Water well at beginning of day
  • Don’t grow them in the same soil more than once in three years
how they multiply
How they multiply
  • They don’t need bees, but multiply themselves
  • The ‘seed potato’ pushes the new potatoes upwards
  • They have to stay underground, otherwise they become toxic
  • The more underground, the greater the harvest (average is 10-fold)
  • With tires (mobile version) they multiply more rapidly
