Have I mentioned the potatoes?

potatoes from the garden

Another harvest from our garden. These are all new potatoes, meaning small. If you leave the potatoes in the ground until fall, they will supposedly get big like store potatoes. Red potatoes are generally small anyway though, and I needed the garden space. Besides, who has the patience for a crop that takes multiple seasons?

Digging up the potatoes was awesome. It was so fun that after the boys and I had done half the bed, I went across the street to see if the neighbor boy wanted to come dig some up too. What you see here is about 25 pounds, and I've already started daydreaming about potato condos to maximize our garden potential next year.
