I harvest one tote for Thanksgiving and they were small and few.  Today I harvest the 2nd tote and got a decent harvest.  bounce   I just dump the totes as the SP are usually at the bottom.  I have a feeling I'm getting an air fryer for Christmas.

I don't really "cure" them.  Harvest, dry off a day or 2, gently brush off Mel's Mix, put on kitchen tile floor in paper shopping bags.  Wella!  Wink

I will take some to my daughter and DIL at Christmas.  They go crazy for the home grown SP, winter squash, summer garlic and Christmas oranges.

LQQK'n good. I think next year, I'll try using taller plastic trash cans for my SP's. Mine does ok in the half barrels but a little crowded.

How many slips do you plant per half barrel? I found that 3 slips per storage tote was better than 4 or 5.

I have always used 3 plants per tote. I think more plants will result in smaller fruit.
