117. It's easy to grow a LOT of nutritious calories from Irish potatoes or
sweet potatoes if you have even a tiny patch of sunny ground. All it takes is a single potato to start.

I have grown both with success in the San Fernando Valley. Irish potatoes are a cooler weather/climate crop. Sweet potatoes love heat. And because they grow underground, they are not very prone to theft because most people won't recognize the plants or know how to harvest.
