I'm wondering if my potatoes are producing very well. The tops are huge and have blossoms on them, I don't remember the plants being that big before they are red Viking We have never grown before maybe that it. I guess dig up a hill and see is the only way to know for sure. Your zucs must be a few days ahead of ours, we haven't harvested any yet I am thinking this weekend though for sure. I caint wait for zucchini fritters.Yesterday was the first harvest of the shell peas.
Took out one Yukon Gold potato plant. I had halfway vowed not to grow that variety again after it had performed poorly for a couple of seasons. But, the spuds are in a different garden this year and it's one of DW's favorites.
Potatoes at about goose egg size - for some reason I'm never confident enough to dig new potatoes until they are larger than I prefer. Oh well. It's really time for me to begin taking out the spuds but I don't see any foliage that is dying. If the Yukons go first, they will have to do a little better than xxx large egg size but we will see. It was delightful to have the creamed peas and potatoes for dinner.
First zucchini were harvested yesterday, as well. Gorgeous things!
