I harvested the Red Pontiac potatoes yesterday, and boy are they beauts! They’re large, with the largest coming in at just under a pound! The total harvest was 27 3/4 lbs from 5lbs of seed potato. That’s about 6lbs of potatoes per pound planted. Not too shabby! So far the total potato tally is close to 80lbs. And, I still have a row and a half to harvest! Woohoo!

In other news, we had a short rain two days ago. I went to check on the cucumbers, and they were out of control! This is what we have left after giving our CSA shares and giving a bunch to the neighbors:

I’ll be canning pickles tomorrow!

And, I’ve also harvested most of the onions and have brought them in to complete curing:

(This is about half)

Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the white onions (all 50 of them!) started to rot on the outside layers. So, I had to throw them all in the compost. But, the yellow and purple onions look, and taste great!

Check back soon!
