Early Potatoes

Since the pest damaged to our potatoes was so bad they couldn't be saved, we decided to harvest what we could as early potatoes. This means we won't have them for storage over the winter, but we will get a few meals at least. We dumped one of the containers and had about fifteen potatoes for four plants. It was a little bit depressing because there were at least forty to fifty more little mini potatoes that had just started to form before the plant died. We could have had a massive crop. Well, at lest now we know growing them in containers is very productive. These I sliced up and made homemade chips out of to go with some baked zucchini for dinner. Dipped in olive oil, sprinkled with rosemary and garlic salt and broiled on high for about thirty minutes. Yummy!
