Potato Harvest

Devon planted and tended the potatoes plants in our front yard the entire summer:

He did an amazing job gardening: last evening when we picked the last remaining potatoes, they were the largest potatoes we’ve ever grown (and also possibly the yummiest):

We’ve been growing potatoes now for about five years and experimented with raised beds and other planting methods. So far:

  • Front yard wins: it gets the most sunshine
  • Raised beds are too dry for our potatoes: they do OK, but it’s more arid than expected
  • Planting potatoes after removing sod is not the best idea: grubs that typically feed on sod will start feeding on tubers
