Yukon Gold

July 21, 2014

Potatoes! Who wants potatoes? Come get your potatoes!

What possessed me to plant so many? Actually, I didn't plant any more hills than in past years, but we got so much rain, and added so much sheep compost to the soil, each hill produced half a basket of spuds.

I grew the Yukon Gold variety for the first time this year and they are huge. Below is the crop I dug yesterday before the heat wave hit. I have three times that many red potatoes. Crazy. Tonight I'm sorting by size to find five of each variety to take to the county fair.

Potatoes look great, what a crop for sure. That would be fantastic to have such a great food to grow, and then produce so many.
