Potato Harvest 2014

I dug up the potatoes on Monday before we got the rainstorm. It was a little disappointing, but that was my fault. I planted a lot of my potatoes in November, thinking I could get an extra early harvest. Instead, most of them froze to death. I planted a second batch of potatoes in January, and those were the ones I harvested this week. So once again I didn't get that many potatoes, and will have to save most or all of them for planting next year.

Now I know that potatoes should not be planted in Texas before January!

I ended up getting 2.8 pounds of Red Pontiac and 2.0 pounds of Purple Viking. I'll save these to replant next year, and maybe buy another variety or two to try.
