Freshly dug potatoes

potatoes

Nearly 50 pounds of potatoes were dug on June 10, 2013. These potatoes went through 3 heavy frosts that caused significant above ground plant dieback. Had there been no frosts, we probably would have easily doubled the harvested weight. There are 9 pounds of potatoes in this large bowl. Red potatoes are Red Lasota and White potatoes are Kennebec. Both potatoes performed exceptionally well this year! Potatoes need loose soil; watch for potato rot with excessive moisture — especially if it’s hot outside!
