Oscar and his wife have a different idea of the "pretty calves" in this old postcard. We're not sure of its date, and it was never mailed so there's no stamp. But the typeface on the back is old. Thirties? Fifties? Anyone want to guess?

Potatoes are big in Idaho. Nearly 12 percent of all potatoes grown in the USA are grown in Idaho. Washington comes in second with 9.5 percent, and even Maine contributes 1.5 percent of the annual harvest. On average, each year every American consumes 126 pounds of spuds, 16 pounds as french fries. Potatoes are good for you. They have no fat, cholesterol or sodium and are rich in vitamin C. The potato in this postcard is a bit larger than normal, but in Idaho they do grow some big ones.
