Potato Harvest

I have beenm busy redecorating the house for the last few weekends. I am now nearly done with all rooms and jsut some finishing touches are missing, as well as cleaning up the spare bedroom/office, that has been used for storage. This weekend I decided it was time to harvest the potatoes. It's been quite rainy here the last few days and Friday/Saturday was the first time in weeks where it was sunny and hot (at times I thought we have been transported forward in time to November that's how it felt and looked).

I had only planted 6 potatoes in two grow bags and the harvest is pretty nice. I got about 50 potatoes out of those 6 plants, which I think is quite decent. Of course I had to have fresh potatoes for Sunday dinner and they have been amazing.

Now I still have salad and tomatoes as well as some carrots left. I have lot's of tomatoes but they are still green and need to turn red and the carrots have only been planted a couple weeks back, so I expect them to be harvested late August/mid September. 

Tomatoes need to turn red now
