Potato Harvest


Kipfler spuds freshly dug from out in my garden. This is the second harvest from the area. First harvest was back a few weeks ago and we haven't eaten all of those yet.

Its interesting how these potatoes came about.

They are the left overs we missed last year towards Christmas. We never watered them over the winter months, just let them do their thing. These spuds would have to be the most cheapest potatoes we have ever grown.

Once the spuds had died back, Pat started digging them out on his good days.

Going to use some of the green ones and resow another area of the garden and hopefully we'll do as good. These will be ready with any luck by the end of the year.

Some pretty darn big spuds in there and 1 spud is feeding the 2 of us.

We have stored the crop in a big garden pot with an old tea towel over them in our shed.

Until next time....hoo roo

That's a great harvest, I hope our kipflers do just as well. Nothing beats a home grown spud, they just melt in your mouth when they're cooked!

I'm thinking baked spud, with sour cream and chives...mmmm...
