    1. 1st Man,

      Yes potatoes!!!! I put them in several months back.
      This season, I used tires and good soil instead of just covering the potato seeds with straw.

  3. We ate our first potatoes from the garden tonight as well. Had a little cabbage and sausage with em. The boy and I love that stuff.

    Sadly I noticed Potato Beetle Larva on my Tomatoes this evening as well. First time dealing with that particular pest here.

    1. PP,

      Growing your own potatoes, omg......talk about good.
      I make kielbasa with potatoes and peppers and my guys love it too.

      I hope you're able to kill off the larva, don't want your tomatoes ruined.

  4. The spuds look great!

    This weekend I'm going to plant 30 for the fall crop, hope they survive the summer heat and the untested spot I will be planting them in. Not much sun there but maybe it will be fine.

    Love the song!

    1. Mike,

      Thank you!!!

      Planting them in the shade may help the potatoes survive the summer. I hope all goes well with your potatoes.
      Make sure to keep the potato seed and the leaves cool with water.

    1. Mrs. Mac,

      I thought they were too!!! Last year they were real small and the quantity was minimal. This year the harvest is healthy.

    1. Sweet Kymber,

      Thank you!!!! It was you who suggested the soil, and I went with soil instead of straw. That made a world of difference with growing the potatoes. I will make potatoes and gravy, maybe not french fries but smashed potatoes.

      Sending love to you and Jam.
      Your Friend,
      Sandy

  10. Wonderful harvest. I love their "roundness". I didn't plant potatoes this year and am missing that. They are so fun to harvest - like finding buried treasure.

    1. Michaele,

      Thank you! I love how nice they came out this year.
      I enjoyed harvesting them but needed to be careful with digging them up not to cause the skin to get damaged.
