And no, you can’t take a supermarket potato and slice it up and plant it. They’ve been treated to prevent them from sprouting during storage.
Hmmmmm,,,,,,,,, No one told me,,,, I did a few times as they were starting to leaf out in the cellar and was rewarded with some of the best spuds I have ever had. Now that all the prime land around Bridgehampton is gone for developments and luxury homes [what a waste]." Feb 5, 12 7:36 AM
Finally, someone other than he fisherman see that the DEC is out of control.

What about giving them interest and loss of pay for the whole fiasco? Defamation of character, and mental anguish? A slip and fall in King Kullen because you were too busy watching someone would get you more than just loss of the seafood, some have been forced to shut down business and leave the state here to make ends meet."

You could fix it yourself, there was Liggets Drug Store, tube tester, one in Southampton on Hampton Rd, and one in Sag Harbor for marine electronics too, that was hardly open!" May 10, 13 7:07 AM
If I could climb a ladder, I'd try to get back all those years. The only traffic jams were from potato trucks, and cauliflower later on, now its BMW, and Mercedes Benz. Take the ferry from Orient, with the spuds and go to Rail Road Salvage..." May 10, 13 4:29 PM
I remember the stores, actually the commercials, well.
Railroad Salvage was the pre-cursor to places like Job Lot and Odd Lots and other closeout stores. And then there was that train set in the East Windsor store.
The business frontman, a decorated WWII veteran, Rueben "Rubie" William Vine, 86, has died.
Vine, who used to live in New Haven but relocated to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, was the king of close-out stores. He opened his first in 1950 and went on to become famous starring in his own goofy, boisterous commercials.
The commercials, which also sometimes featured his wife, Choo -Choo, were considered a pretty edgy, and slightly cheesy, marketing move in those days.
Plum was nothing like the old days of Black and White TV's and the damn antenna on the roof.
