weekend potato harvest

Harvests, Root Vegetables

potatoes in a box
With a bit of help from my 15 year old son, I harvested a nice box full of potatoes on Saturday. I suppose if we were a bit more careful we wouldn’t have pierced so many of them with the digging fork. We did our best.

I have mostly white fingerling potatoes, but also some big Russets and reds. They are delicious now – crisp new potatoes. I’ll hang these in a paper bag from the rafters in the basement. I think they will last us a few months. A good harvest. Next year, I’d like to grow a few more large Russets. They are delicious.
