Potato varieties. Click to enlarge.
We planted the first of the potatoes today--four 40-foot rows plus a bit more. Five varieties went in the ground today: a very old fingerling variety called Ozette; another fingerling, Rose Finn, a tasty favorite of mine; the famous and ubiquitous Yukon Gold; a beautiful pinky-white heirloom called Early Rose; and the silky-skinned Maris Piper. All were ordered from Ronningers out of Colorado. These varieties (pictured above) added up to 12 pounds of seed potatoes -- only 28 more pounds to plant!
Full-throttle garden season is about to begin. Bring it!
