Our first potato harvest was 3 of each type of plant, yielding 3.5 pounds, and took place on June 8 (yesterday).
The Blue Viking potatoes, seen in the middle third of this picture, are less tolerant of the drought and sun than the Kennebec and Yukon. I wonder why that is?
They are so pretty, though, with their purply-pink skins.
As I write this Thursday evening, we have had to delay a visit back to the land with friends as we are hearing the sirens for the third time tonight. It could be exciting!
Until next time, remember, this is not paradise. It's Purgatory Ranch.
