    You can see what Zoe thought about harvesting potatoes. Luckily she changed her tune a few potatoes in!

    Our harvest this year was not nearly what it was last year. I bought slips of ‘Beauregard’ and ‘Purple Passion’ and only the ‘Beauregard’ produced potatoes. It was a big failure for the ‘Purple Passion’, which unfortunately took up probably half the bed.

    I think my brother was in hog heaven as he assisted Chris in digging up the potatoes. A chance to garden?? Sure!

    See? Only about half of a five gallon bucket full. Not like last year’s harvest. Oh well. Live and learn—only ‘Beauregard’ from now on. I think Curt, my brother, is going to try a white variety. I told him if he succeeds with those then the following year I’ll try them. He can be the guinea pig, hah!

    After that, she was done and wanted to sit on the sidelines for a bit. She pulled up the clay label for the tomatoes and proceeded to read what it said. Though, now that I think about it she may have known what it said based on the fact it was by the tomatoes. But, maybe not. She stared at it contently for a minute and sounded it out pretty clearly. Her reading skills have sped up fast now that she’s in kindergarten.

    Next it was time to put in the onions. Chris and I picked up two sets of onions, Texas 1015 Super Sweet and Red Creole. I think after they counted it was determined about 200 onions were planted!

    Now we just need to plant the leeks we bought, too. It was a great weekend for gardening!
