Yummy Red Potatoes
Digging potatoes is really therapeutic. The process is slow, requires a sensitive touch and is hands on with the dirt. I usually sit and work a small area at a time. My technique involves a forked trowel and careful sweep of soil layers until I reveal the hidden treasures.
The tubers I used were started from a batch of organic red potatoes that I allowed to sprout. I cut out the eyes and planted them around the full moon in March.
As I harvest each section, I've noticed that most grow toward the surface. However, I have found them down at least half a foot or more.
