Last weekend we dug up the potatoes and let them dry out a bit in the basket (covered with fabric, placed in the pantry). Today, we transferred them to the box for storage.
I think potatoes must be one of the most satisfying things to grow. Seriously, we plopped a few potatoes into the ground in the spring, watered them when it was really dry, occassionally covered them with dirt, and then came back to see what we got. I don’t know if I said this last year, but Honey and I really enjoy digging potatoes. It is like we are digging for treasure, not sure what is going to come up but inevitably thrilled with what we do unearth. Potatoes may be worth growing just for that thrill alone!
