    Sounds like you are having fun experimenting with your toy. You'll soon get the hang of it and what works best for you.

    Carol, when they start sprouting I make vegetable soup and can it in quarts. I freeze veggies especially to go in that soup.

    Frustrating isn't it when they start to sprout. I feel like I need to do something so soup it is.

    I did use a bunch in soup. Still a crate to go. (There where 3 crates!) It is so frustrating as last year we put them in a place that was TOO COLD and all froze solid. This year, too warm and too much light. :( Got to find the perfect place next year. Jeepers.

    Yes they are very expensive here, too. I also bake a dog treat he likes that is super simple and very inexpensive. (PNButter, milk and flour!)

    Learning as I go.... found out that the dried potato cubes have SHARP corners and I wound up double bagging them as they poked holes in the seal n save bags!
