I love digging up potatoes in the fall. It is a bit like an easter egg hunt, digging through the dark dirt looking for the light brown skin of the potatoes. Jackpot!
I enlisted jack's help this year. He was responsible for putting the potatoes into the box
He preferred to dig in the dirt and look for "erms". We talked a lot about how to hold them gently and not cut them with our spades. Our worms are huge this year which always makes me happy. I know they are working hard converting our heavy clayish soil to lovely rich dark soil
This is about half of the potatoes. We will leave the rest in the ground for now. Not a bad haul considering we didn't plant any new potatoes these are from the little baby potatoes that we missed last year
Unrelated but cute pictures of jack! I couldn't decide which pictures to cut out so you get to see them all!
