New Desiree potatoes


#1

Pulled one of my (still green) Desiree potato plants to use the new potatoes.

These look almost pink when washed


#2

Good haul from one plant


#3

Also dug one Kennebec and one German Butterball. These need to wait longer.

Kennebec had only three tubers and they were about tennis-ball sized at best. GB had a LOT of tubers, but all egg sized or smaller.

I like Desire and keep growing them, but they aren’t very popular at Farmers Market. My guess is the pink skin doesn’t stand out.

I went to get some new potatoes and discovered the damnrabbits had been digging in the patch
