Potato harvest


Geez, I had no idea about how productive potatoes are.  I planted 'eyes' here and there in my satellite beds among the tomatoes.  So, I spent time this evening harvesting; some were actually in soil, some were in straw, and others were in between. But there were LOTS of potatoes.

This evening's harvest were from a bed that was a straw-bale experiment and a more conventional block at the end of some tomatoes.

  1. I will stick a fork under some of my potatoes this weekend and see how ours compare. It has been a drought year here and so I am not expecting a bumper crop!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
