Potato, First Harvest 6-3-14
This year I planted 5 Russet potatoes. I use supermarket organic grown russet potatoes as seeds. I just wash them, let them sprout then cut into 2 pieces, each with a sprout, let them heal then planted.
One of the plants was looking weak and losing color while the others are still fairly green yet. So I decided to dig the yellowing one up and see how it was growing. Wow I was surprised. There were only these three potatoes and a couple marbles under the plant. The big one weighed 16.0 oz. all three weighed 26 oz. I think I think the big one is dinner tonight!
It was dinner tonight and it was goooood! :-)
I'll wait maybe 2 more weeks and dig up the others. Today is 108 days since planting.
