Creamed potatoes with green beans.

Hey, I'm growing these! Also, two other fingerlings. What's different for me this year's is that my potatoes are still growing. Usually I hope they make it until May, and then I greedily eat as small drip by myself. This year that sort of happened, but had left the growbags on drip, and there must have been some missed taters, and they started growing again. A bit flea bitten, but it is so hot for spraying. (Hey! Maybe I should try that diomataceous earth!). The last pictures are how they looked in spring. One are some I harvested back in April or May; obviously not Rose Fin. Those must be Red Thumb. For the record (mine!), also planted La Ratte and Russian Banana.

Nice looking plants! I still have about 20' of Yukon gold to dig but mine are done, and I'm happy with the harvest. I have 60 to 70 pounds of fingerlings in wooden peck baskets cluttering up my kitchen. It's a good "clutter"

I think you must mean how they looked this past spring, but I'll take it! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hey! Maybe you are right! I've got flowers! First time in maybe 5 or 10 years that I've kept up with them after I pulled the first ones.
