But also, lots of potato dinners :)
I might make some gnocchi and freeze it.
We can go through a locally bought 10kg bag in 1-3 weeks usually.it's good having cold evenings, baked vegies great for warming up the house.

I'm letting them dry off, then I'll brush them and tip them into a large plastic storage bucket I keep on the bottom shelf of the food cupboard. I'll put all the teeny ones in a paper bag on top. Rotten stinky potatoes is hardly a problem here - the air is very dry. I did the same in Brisbane and it worked well - but no damaged spuds, moist soul, or if they got wet - they had to be completely dry. I keep my onions in the same bin.

How will you store these Scarlett to make sure they stay fresh and useable for as long as possible?

yes, I would plant one spud and get about 6-10 back at best. Here I plant one spud and get half a bucket back.

sweet potatoes, on the other hand, i planted three and got several wheelbarrows-full back!

Beautiful crop. I'm focusing on sweet potato now in Brisbane. I still have some regular spuds here and there but they never did do much good.
