Diggin' and Pickin'

One of my favorite harvest of the year was just a couple of weeks ago ... potatoes!

There is something so immensely satisfying about this harvest! It really does seem as though you are digging up an empty field; and then - "Look! Potatoes!!"

Despite our best intentions, we harvested enough to last a year (I may not be exaggerating!) Thank goodness we all like potatoes :-)

And somehow, despite all our years gardening and visiting self-pick farms, digging and growing and harvesting, we had never picked apples, a situation we have now remedied twice in just the past couple of weeks.

Sometimes it's hard to decide just which variety is your favorite, so it's good to try a couple!

Now to find new recipes for potatoes and apples ...
