Potatoes from Space

I knew that things weren’t going well in the vegetable locker by the earthy smells emanating from the dark spaces within. Potatoes, I figured, were supposed to smell that way after 120 days of dark, humid, captivity.

Mustering up the courage to actually look inside the locker took was no mean feat. What I found was something alien. Something not potatoe. It looked to me like it belonged anywhere but here in earth.

The whole lot went over the side in short order and the locker cleaned out.

Here’s what has lasted without refrigeration or cold storage of any kind:
Eggs- 120 days and still going
Feta- same
Cabbage- same
Onoins- same
Shallots- same
Spaghetti Squash- 90 days
Grapefruit- 35 days
Oranges- 30 days

    That looks about right. When it’s hot out in the ocean, its foggy and wet on the Wet Coast. That means you’re on the right track, heading the right direction. Finally. Woohoo.
