"Look at my beautiful potatoes!"

We gave the potato barrel a tip and she poured out 5.8 lbs of organic homegrown potatoes!! My mom and Zari were with me, both enthusiastic, both adorable and helpful. I can't tell you how fun it is to play hide and seek with your homegrown garden produce!

Originally I planted 6 potato "eyes" in the barrel...we saw plenty of examples of baby potatoes that would've kept growing had we let it go longer. Next year I'll try and wait a few more weeks...I doubt I can do it though :)
