Red Potato Digging

After looking at the potato plants like this for a few days we decided to pull them up and see if anything was happening beneath the soil because it didn’t look good.   In their place we’re growing some more potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins.  Let’s take a look at the adventure..

Sad potato plants. I nearly cried pulling them out.  It was way too hot for them this year.

And more and more.  Every time we found one we danced.

Look at how they grow, roots attached to the soil.  Beautiful, isn’t it?

And more! High 5’s all around.  Looks like the potato plants worked out after all.  Good job red potatoes.
