Mavis Garden Blog – Freshly Dug Potatoes in January? Say What?
Yesterday I was out in the backyard garden working on a new project, as I was digging up one of our raised garden beds, my shovel dug in to something.
I thought I had cleared all the potatoes out last fall, but apparently not.
Not wanting to loose any more potatoes, I got down on my hands and knees and started to carefully move the dirt away in hopes of finding more hidden gems. And guess what. There WERE MORE! I might as well have been digging for gold it was so exciting. So how many potatoes was I able to harvest?
2 pounds 9 ounces to be exact. Holy mashed potatoes people, that’s enough for a meal! Wahoooo! I may just have to forget to harvest some potatoes again this fall so there will be some to eat next January.
Are you planning on planting potatoes this spring? If so, what are your favorite variety to grow?
I think Yukon Golds are my favorite.
