I am terrible at digging potatoes. Good thing the doode apparently loves doing it. I mean, I can understand the thrill of the dig at some level, but I kind of suck at it. I can’t find them!!! Naturally I didn’t label the rows or anything. I really wanted some fingerlings, but found only a few small russets. Looks like the Red Cloud will have their day today. Aren’t they pretty? They’re such a nice dark red color! I think we have a good harvest this year.

We planted the potatoes on April 4, while my best pal was visiting for easter break. Poor best pal, such a hard worker on her vacation.

Notice our nice stepping stones. HA! Like that worked! Here’s the patch with Edwina on June 1.

Planting was fun and I can’t wait to sample the harvest! We were discussing your amazing garden this weekend.
