The best way to storo them is by pitting. Spread a quantity af dry straw along tlio ground, tuo lee; hi tie by whatever length may bo necessary for tho quan tity you have. Heap the tubers up on this triangular wise; cover com pletely with another layer of straw, then with clay 01* earth. Never re inovo the covering until you aro ready to use the potatoes. Start* at one end and withdraw tho daily or weekly supply, covering tho end up immediate ly you are finished.
