Potato Plants Pre-Digging
I think potatoes are quickly becoming one of my favorite crops. They take oh-so-little work and are oh-so-satisfying to harvest. You just water the plants, add dirt or hay, let them die, and then dig! Plus, when you dig them up you get the added benefit of feeling like an old timey prospector panning for gold. I planted red, purple and white and each flowers accordingly.
So far we have used the small potatoes in a warm summer salad, made plenty of breakfast hash, and purple mashed potatoes. The purple potatoes are really lovely and maintain their color on cooking.
