"Good heavens, potatoes are worth more than gold!"
"Surely not!"
"If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what would you prefer, a bag of potatoes or a bag of gold?"
"Yes, but a desert island isn't Ankh-Morpork!"
"And that proves gold is only valuable because we agree it is, right? It's just a dream. But a potato is always worth a potato, anywhere. Add a knob of butter and a pinch of salt and you've got a meal, anywhere. Bury gold in the ground and you'll be worrying about thieves forever. Bury a potato and in due season you could be looking at a dividend of a thousand percent."
Terry Pratchett, Making Money

Wild potato species, originating in modern-day Peru, can be found throughout the Americas, from Canada to southern Chile.
Potatoes were domesticated approximately 7,000–10,000 years ago in the Andes region of South America, where the species is indigenous.

“Potato” in Spain
-🥔🍟-
Tumblr media
The English word “potato” comes from the Spanish word “patata”, which, according to the Real Academia Española, is a blend of “papa” (from Quechua) + “batata” (from Taíno).
Many English words for food come from Indigenous languages. Like tomato from “tomatl” (Nahuatl).

I had to throw out a bag of potatoes but I had to toss them into a special trashcan made solely for potatoes that was in a house filled with chickens. I ended up in my third grade classroom and getting glued to a chair after I got lost.
