The Last of the Potatoes

Mashed Potatoes and other holiday yummyness.  November 2014  
We polished off the last of the 2015 potatoes a few days ago.  Matt and I love potatoes served in pretty much any fashion--baked, mashed, fried, scalloped, wedges--you name it.  We eat them easily five times per week, usually for breakfast.  We started to eat our 2015 crop in late June, but the majority were dug in late October.   That is more than half a year of homegrown potatoes.  Someday we hope to make it the whole year round.

Its sad to see the potato sacks fall empty, but there are wee green things sprouted for our 2016 garden and so the cycle begins again.  Its quite satisfying.

  1. Hi Beth, it sounds like you've had quite a supply there judging from the number of meals you've made with them! We are enjoying our potatoes right now, but the main crop we put in have not grown very large despite all the rainfall. Maybe it was just the variety, shall hope for better luck next season!

  2. I can imagine it is sad to see them go. But how wonderful that you grew your own potatoes and will grow more again. Thank you for stopping by!
