Potato Update

Grasshoppers are devouring potato foliage.  Plants nearest the edges of the beds are leafless, and we'll probably harvest them next week before we lose sight of where the denuded plants are.

The All-Blues look fabulous, strong, and tall.  We're actually hilling potatoes this summer, and I'm hopeful that should increase our yields, barring destruction by the grasshoppers and emerging potato beetles.

Beautiful purple flowers and stems on our All-Blues.

Looking good!

Garlic, already browning, and tree onions

Until next time, remember, this is not paradise.  It's Purgatory Ranch.
