in our neck of the woods, it's potato harvesting time!
we missed our window of opportunity for planting sweet potatoes (tis the farm life sometimes) so we're savoring our apples of the earth.
early one evening, during the golden hour, we harvested our potatoes from the garden. we dug into the soil with our digging forks, sticking our fingers deep into the soil, & pulled out the most beautiful red & purple potatoes.
little chip & sweet ginger were happy to snack on the potato tops. nothing goes to waste around here!
we planted purple potatoes, red potatoes & russet potatoes. the russet variety was by far the most productive, but we were thrilled with the variety in color.
sometimes color wins over productivity on the farm. gardening should be an experience that charms all of the senses, yes?
my handsome farmer grows some beautiful potatoes!
we harvested a big basket full of potatoes from our one row. we have been sharing them with farm customers & our neighbors. they're so delicious!
luke has been thinly slicing them into chip-like size & roasting them in the oven with a bit of s&p, fresh garlic from the garden & olive oil.
during our garden harvest, we even found a little friend.
have you ever grown potatoes in your garden? what's your favorite variety?
