The Potato Piles

Way back in July, we had these little piles with some vines sticking out:

August brought blossoms:


The potato piles continued to grow.  We stacked them a total of three tires high and let them go.  This week HandyMan dug them up and filled a table with spuds!

2010PotatosI wish I could tell you what kind of potatoes we planted - but it was HandyMan's gig and I don't remember - and that gardening notebook bit- lasted about three weeks.  Oops.

Anyway, I think I smell some Garlic Cheddar Smashed Potatoes and some [Green] Potato Soup in my future.  I also want to experiment with these Potato Crescent Rolls.  What are your favorite fresh potato dishes?  Leave me a link - I can always use more ideas!!

  1. Wha-hoo- what a great haul! My spuds didn't fare too well this year, so your pictures are inspiring. :-) Thanks for posting.
