Dug some russets this morning. 6 plants, about 10 lb or less. Quite the variety in size of some of them. Don't wether to start digging them soon or leave them. Don't want the big ones to get to big. What do you members think.
Did the bugs. Not to many bugs now. 31 Irish cobbler plants up now from 16 four days ago. Cobblers planted July 14. Buckwheat that I planted last Wednesday are up. Only 8 days.
Cleaned up the MF 14 for a parade I'm goin in on Saturday. Took the chains off, that would be a little to bumpy of a ride with them on.
Got a new phone for my birthday, kinda screwed up on some of the pictures.

I find that if my Russets get too big they get hollow heart. If their skins are set I'd be tempted to dig them now.

Those are really nice spuds!!!  You PEI guys are the spud-kings!!!

 

I have two varieties growing this year, Bridget and Shepody both for French-fries as we live near Lake Erie and do a bit of fishing for walleye and perch, so Friday night fish and chips is a staple.  Shepody's are just starting to die off now, Bridget's are going strong.

 

Really sweet MF too.

Shepody's were popular on PEI once, but never hear of them now. Never heard of Bridget's before. Fish and chips sounds great for supper. What time. I can bring potatoes.
