Digging up the potato harvest

Over the last couple of days I finished off digging up the last rows of potatoes. It's a rewarding chore, a bit like digging up buried treasure, give another dig and find a few more!

After letting them dry in the sun for a few hours, I bagged up several kilos of lovely red skinned potatoes.

This area will now be hoed and sowed with lupins and other 'green manure' plants. I might sneak in a few rows of carrots too..!

Potatoes are one of my all time favorite things to harvest because I always feel like I am on a treasure hunt! Good haul! They look great! We just planted potatoes on Saturday. 350 hills at our community garden which will be donated to the needy. Have a great day!

What a great harvest! I love digging up potatoes too, it's such fun to uncover them. The red skinned varieties are my favourites.
