Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Still Digging Potatoes

I'm not done yet.... I'm still digging potatoes.

So many taters...

As I'm cleaning up the garden I'm still finding rows and rows of potatoes. That $17 bag of 50lbs of seed potatoes had really paid off! We've boiled 'em, mashed 'em, and stuck 'em in a stew.

But one thing is for sure. We are going to need a lot of mashed potatoes for all those turkeys out there. Wow! Our turkey project has really exceeded our expectations. Unfortunately, due to bad timing, we haven't started to butcher yet. We'd better hurry tho....um. Some of them turks are nearly as big as me! This could be an interesting fall.

Happy Sunday everyone! Are you closing down your garden - found any surprise taters?

50 pounds of seed patooties? That would give us 600 pounds of spuds. You must eat a lot of them?

No, potatoes are all done. Just picked the last of the aubergines and dehydrated them. Last of tomatoes done. With relief the veg plot is now almost done with for this year! But well done you for growing all those potatoes!
