Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Those are BIG Spuds!

Yesterday, I started digging my potato crop. I planted (if you remember from a springtime post)  2 kinds.  Yukon Golds & Red Pontiacs.   I   only dug about 6 plants ...We have enjoyed a few small new potaoes as they began their journey to becoming "Big Potatoes." Never in my life have I grown such Giant spuds! The one in my husbands hand weighed almost 2 pounds!! The average ones so far harvested weighed 1 1/2  pounds... I was afraid they would be hollow but they are firm & delicious...  (The egg ) in comparison was a Jumbo offering from one of our hens and we thought that was big! I wonder what the red ones will look like? We will check on those today... and find a good place to store these beauties for the coming months..and with 15 more plants to dig I could be even  more surprised...
