I thought it might be a good idea to check out the taters that were getting flooded over and over. The bottom 4 plants, the ones at the end of the line so to speak that keep getting the most water, got pulled up last night and turned into dinner. The 3 russets and 1 of the red plants, completely harvested, gave enough potatoes for 5 of us to eat (my 4 year old wasn’t interested) as a main dish. The peas are going nuts and today many are being frozen and I will indeed have zucchini coming out my ears very soon, like so many new gardeners!
The next few months will be hectic, as I am going to start getting rid of mass quantities of our crap that I don’t want to pack and unpack again, plus work and the garden and everything, but I’ll shoot for a post every 3-4 days with updates and pictures.

Our tater harvest:
Peas, plus a couple carrots that needed to be pulled to thin out the row and an onion just ’cause:
