First potato

IMGP7660
I was digging with my hands hoping for enough young potatoes for a meal, and this big one came up!  A little bit on the creative side, but a nice healthy potato.

The potatoes, beans, strawberries, and cucumbers are all thriving this year on the unamended soil we dug in the spring.  The greens, beets and carrots are best not mentioned.  Next year, we will probably plant only the former crops in the new-dug beds, and the latter and anything else finicky in this year’s beds, which will have had some building/amendment.

The cucumbers are just out of hand, like zucchini
