We harvested the first of our potatoes today. We are growing five different variates of potatoes in four different areas around our city lot. The all red variety is an early one, and with most of the leaves yellowed, we knew it was about harvest time.
Planted in the bed with the all red potatoes were all blue and rose du var fingerling variates. These two variates could have stated in the ground and grew a little more but we opted to harvest them as well. The smaller potatoes are really nice roasted and that allowed us to clear out the entire bed for replanting.
In total we harvested just over 30 lbs of potatoes. This accounts for about half of the potato plants we're growing. Stored in brown paper bags in our basement these should last well into the winter.
