Ok so, yes, its early. We would have had more and bigger potatoes. But we had 2 hrs of sun today. We have had 5 straight weeks with approximately 4 days sun. I mean, it rained on those days also. I looked at our forecast, goodness knows it is about to be winter here in Ak. I considered my options. I gave up a few lbs and we dug our potatoes. We only had a few plants, our garden here is not huge. We have peas and acorn squash still growing rapidly, and lots of tomatoes in the green house, 2 full pepper plants about to be harvested. We had about 30 large heads of broccoli, 12 of cabbage, and a handful of squash and zucchini. The pumpkins and acorn squash will continue to grow with the peas to early frosts. but the potatoes, they were ready to join us. So here is our bucket o'potatoes. We have the top 3rd purple, and the bottom 2 thirds are white potatoes, many quite a bit larger. Potatoes store well as do acorn squash and pumpkin so glad about these harvests.
