Digging Potatoes

This week, we finally had a stretch of dry enough weather to dig up the potatoes in the lower field. The yield wasn’t as great as we’d hoped for all varieties, but it was definitely a great learning experience on the best way to dig and get them out of the field. Doing so by hand is hard work and tricky, not cutting the potato in half as you dig into the dirt. We also learned that fresh potatoes have to be kept out of the sun and put in a dark cool place as soon as possible!
