Oops! My Roots are Showing

Harvest Something: Potatoes!



It's only about five pounds, but it was also only those that I could see peeking above the dirt. I don't know what's hiding down below, and I haven't harvested the potato towers, yet.

  1. Those are some huge spuds! Have you seen any blight on them?

  2. They're not really that big ;). I haven't seen any thing on them. They all seem to be growing just fine ;).

  3. Isn't digging potatoes just like a treasure hunt? I always wanna shout 'Eureka!' when I find one....

  4. I love digging potatoes-you just never know what you'll get. I do always manage to "stab" my largest spud with the digging fork though.
    :(

  6. Those look fabulous! I'm growing red potatoes this year and it will be a while till they are ready. Potatoes are really fun to grow. Just wish I had more room.

  7. We've been digging up our potatoes, too. I planted a bunch this year, and they are just so tasty. I was kind of surprised that I can really taste the difference between the store-bought ones and my home-grown ones.

  8. I ended up with 5 small potatoes. I need to plant again.
