For dinner tonight, we harvested the first two hills of potatoes. It was early, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But what did I have to lose?
I decided to dig up the bag of potatoes. Out of all the hills, this was the one I was most curious about how/if it was working.
So here is the bag before, you can just see it under the foliage...
Here is what it looked like on it's own...
I dumped the bag into a bin, dug out the potatoes, then put the dirt back in the bag.
And here are the potatoes! The yield was small, but it was early. These were planted about 10wks ago. Another few weeks and I think the yield would've been much better. But the quality was amazing! We grilled them on the bbq in olive oil, garlic, salt and some onion. My mom and stepdad were here to share in them, which was great considering their contributions to my garden. And hopefully they'll be able to share in many more meals to come. I have 20 more hills!
