Potatoes, First Harvest 2013
We harvested some of our potatoes yesterday. (Hubby harvested and I supervised because I can't dig as I'm recovering from surgery.)
These were Purple Majesty and Mountain Rose Potatoes. Purple Majesty is a mid-season and Mt. Rose is an early potato.
As you can see the blue were blue all the way through and the red ones were pink inside. (This photo was from this morning when we cut up the small ones to fry for breakfast.)
We enjoyed them for dinner roasted with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and some fresh rosemary from the garden. The taste was so much better than store bought potatoes. From ground to plate was less than one hour. That is what it's all about.
