"GOOD NEWS, POTATO LOVERS! ...

... this big (about 1/2 mile square!) field is being planted with potatoes - a month late, but they'll be fine!  Little yummy red ones.  "Buy Local" is good, but this is WAY too many potatoes for the locals to buy (and it is just one of many fields) so this fall watch for the red potatoes grown in the Skagit Valley and BUY, BUY, BUY! (In front are rows and rows of BIG blackberries to be hand picked for the fresh-fruit markets in late August/Spetember.  Covers are pulled over later to keep birds out and slow the ripening so they get to the market later, after the normal crops.)"  -  RG the Tater-Tout!

Bunns are sprouted and growing well too.  Going to be a bumper crop.

Oooooooooh, little red taters are the bestest--cut them in half and bake them in the oven with a little olive oil and seasoning...om nom nom.

Your bun-per crop looks lovely as always--you grow the bestest bunnehs, RG!

Note to self: Invest in potato futures. RG, have you had the Peter Rabbit talk with every member of your household? That looks like a lot of temptation out there, and the little bunns in the yellow box, well, they look capable of anything.

Oh I love potatoes! A friend recently introduced me to pesto potatoes... I'm in heaven : two of my favourite ingrediants! Add some cheese and that's close to perfection!
