Digging for Potatoes

Posted by Allyson

Two of our volunteers, Paul and Andrea, harvested the potatoes in the house garden last week.  Although I know that potatoes are a root vegetable, it never ocurred to me that you have to dig them up when it's time to harvest them.  I imagine that it would be fun at first, kind of like digging for buried treasure.  But I'm guessing that Paul and Andrea would tell you that the novelty wears off and it becomes quite back breaking in a short amount of time.  Thanks to Paul and Andrea for the great crop this year!
