Got them all out in one day, but was sore the next day. Had a friend visit and he had some buddies there too.
Second planting of buckwheat is doing well, the Irish cobblers I planted on July 14 are growing , but don't think they will produce much, but we will see. I'll dig them the end of September.
Graded all the potatoes yesterday and put them away. 250 lb of yummy russets, for us all, this winter.
Went back today and cleaned up the tops, dished the patch and planted grass.

Nothing beats a fresh baked Russet dripping with butter and sprinkled with a bit of dill, salt and pepper.

Sour cream and bacon go well with dill, salt and pepper.

Dug one row of reds today. Row was 45 ft in length. Ended up with 134 lbs, tennis ball size and bigger. About 12 lbs of smaller ones. Have a a row of russets, 50 ft long to dig yet. Thinking might have enough spuds for the two of us. Three granddaughters might help lower the supply a little. Have one great granddaughter that loves spuds. Think I had seven pound red seed and ten lbs of whites.
