Also a whole lotta potatoes. Not quite as big and numerous as last year, but also not showing any signs of blight. YAY! At least so far. It's possible that they'll all develop rotten spots later and spoil in storage, but I'm choosing to always look on the bright side of life (sung in a Cockney accent, of course) (that's Monty Python, in case the Cockney thing just completely confused you).
Presenting! The worst photo of potatoes ever! Can you even see the second tarp in the back? Probably not. Oh! And there are the blighted tomato plants, still awaiting disposal! And weeds! LOTS AND LOTS OF WEEDS. What a pretty photo.
Also falling under the heading of the bright side of life, there are always some potatoes that get sliced or nicked by the shovel and need to be used right away. Well. The best use I know for potatoes is french fries. And the best french fries are these. And if you're really an indulgent wife, you'll go even further and make these for your husband. Which I did.
A. ended up having a pretty good day yesterday after all.
