Last Potato Harvest


Almost a bucket full of potatoes. 5.5 lbs of Red Marias and 14 lbs of Salem from one bed (22 feet). That’s similar to the potato bed up front, of earlies, which yielded 12 lbs from 16 feet. Also some last squashes, cherry tomatoes, cukes and some errant onions.

What’s left is kale, chard, a couple of winter squashes and lots of green cherry tomatoes, and the sweet potatoes still going strong in the hoop house.

The hens are back to 3 eggs a day, mostly. I’ve re-reintroduced the two pullets to the flock and am steeling myself against their protests and cries for help, because it’s getting nippy and they really need to start spending the nights in the big, warmer coop.
