Most of our potato plants are winding down their growing season, having been ravaged by a variety of pests. We've harvested another three pounds of Burbank Russet potatoes, making our yield about five pounds so far.
I had never actually seen a potato growing in the ground until yesterday. Getting my hands dirty digging for potatoes that were big enough to harvest was like looking for buried treasure. It was an exciting moment when I'd spy a round beige dome half-buried that was big enough to be pulled out. Five pounds of potatoes may be the same amount as one bag you buy at the grocery store. But these potatoes grew from seed potatoes that we planted ourselves and watched grow, so we won't be calling this experience "small potatoes"!
