Even Gophers Love Potatoes!

We harvested all of the Yukon Gold potatoes. I was a bit disappointed in the yield, as I expected more. We planted 10 15 pounds and pulled up about 90 pounds. Not bad really, but we probably could have had more, had the ground not been so hard. We till and amend with compost, but the soil in the bog garden is very rocky and full of clay. Plus the gophers. There were tons of underground tunnels, going every which way. This pic is what gophers do to potatoes. Subscribers never see these, as we have high quality control standards. No, these end up in our kitchen, where I cut off the bad part and cook up the rest. No reason to waste! 🙂

Breakfast: Fried potatoes, garlic, carrots, beets and basil; all fresh from the garden!
I love the colors.
