Rows and Rows of Potatoes

Red Potatoes

A walking tractor with a potato digging attachment is pushed down the row of plants.

The potatoes are visible and we follow behind picking up the spuds.


Only twelve more rows of this kind to harvest!

  3. That's some machine! I have about 8 potato plants that made it. I'll be anxious to see what we get. Last year our potato "crop" was a disaster!

  5. Hi Patrice! Your potatoes are extra beautiful! Red potatoes taste so sweet and good. I've been baking sweet potatoes lately, but reds are my favorite.
    Thank you for sharing your bountiful harvest!

  8. Oh how lovely, I would love to come help you pick up potatoes. I love digging potatoes because to me every time you turn over the earth there is a brand new surprise.
    I think you have a wonderful potato patch. I only have one tiny row. Maybe next year if I am not a procrastinator I can have a big bunch too. I like that tractor with it's attachment, it beats the heck out of a shovel.
    Rest your back. :)

  14. Early harvest for you in your area -- they look great!

    We opted not to plant any this year -- with the hubby working out of town, we had a hard time eating the ones from last year!

    Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays this week. xoxo

  15. I'm back! My oldest nephew, now a captain in the US ARMY with 2 tours under his belt, was totally astounded to see his first potatoes emerge from the ground. He was hooked from the first one and LOVED digging for them ever since. K is looking for a letter in the mailbox. Our mailman is not the most reliable lately so I'm not sure if one was lost, but I'm encouraging her to write another. Girls and summer: so much to do and so little time! Hugs!
