July 13, 2016 Harvest.


Yellow Yukon Potatoes


Got some rain showers coming so figured I do this now since soil is dry. We are in a drought.


Push hay aside. Some plants are still greenish but the rest died out





The yellow ones love to form deeper than the Red Norluns. Sucks for clay soil but luckily this spot has very loose soil which I have been working at for years!





Guess how many. Not bad for a 9 x 2 area I guess.. 18 sq feet





Don't cheat. lol


Spoiler



I thought they were all the same type. Or are the darker ones just not fully ready yet?





So total of 160 Potatoes from a 54sq ft area

Forgot to weigh the red ones. 8.6 pounds of the yellows from the 9 x 2 area. Doesn't sound like much but cant wait to eat fresh home grown Potatoes!

Wondering if you have any luck with green and yellow squash? I have had limited success. Maybe a yield of 4 or 5 and then the vines turn to mush. Could be weather related or a bore. Cambium any advice? I am in lower Delaware.

I havent planted squash enough to know about them or their needs. I appreciate you asking me but this is something Google would know more of. Lol sounds like maybe a disease?

I want to eliminate something next year to make room for them but my problem is sun. I dont have a good spot for them.

The flowers alone make them worth it. My family fries them.

Snap Peas and Garlic. Snap peas are pretty much done. 1st year with them, I love the taste but not worth the space and yields. String Beans are better





What I do with the scraps... Right in the compost pile which by the way is almost all broken down. I'll turn it one more time then distribute it in September

Do you grow Anaheim peppers?

Thanks for the reply. I am guessing it is both weather related and now possibly a borer. I thought perhaps you had some advice other than what I already knew. Your garden is amazing.
