Today was the day of harvest for about 1/3 of my potato plants, and it was really kind of sad. I gathered 2 buckets of plants, and a box of plants (see earlier posts) and I got enough red potatoes for a smallish batch of mashed potatoes. :( Sad. But very tasty. I think if I had had enough dirt, and a deeper container it would have worked better to grow them in containers. I still have a bunch of plant in plastic bags, which aren't quite ready to harvest. I expect more potatoes from them. But if we continue at the current harvest rate, we'll get 3 meals out of 3 months of growing. Did I mention the weather this summer was lame? but seriously- the potatoes do taste really good :D
On another note, I made an apple pie today, which always makes me happy. I haven't made one in years, but I hope it will be good. Granny smith apples were on sale, and I think they make the best pies. We'll see later though I guess!
