    Your potatoes look fantastic!

    We dug up a plant or two last night too. It was enough for a couple dinners. My potato patch got a little too much hard rain at times this season so the ground got pounded down pretty hard and at times it was more of a muddy puddle rather than a garden. But they grew in spite of it and we are looking forward to more spud dinners in the near future.

    Haven't looked at ours yet. It's our first year and we only planted two, so I'm going to wait until after the first frost. This has me looking forward to it, though!

    Looks good. I will be planting my first Alaskan Garden next year. Might even have a small greenhouse by then!
