We finally harvested our potatoes — we got twenty potatoes, so a good bit more than we started with … but no where near what I expected given the size of the plants. I think we planted too late because a lot of the roots had tiny little nubs that would have become potatoes in a few more weeks. Good to know for next year 🙂

Harvesting was fun — we tried pulling the plants, but only found five potatoes. So we started digging around in the soil by hand — got fifteen more potatoes that way, and Anya loved it.

Definitely planting potatoes again next year. Sweet potatoes, however, were a total bust. We had some decent sized vines, but nothing.
