Garden Harvests - August 5, 2013

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

This past week was exciting because I harvested my first potatoes that I have ever grown.  I have always wanted to grow them, but this year I actually planted some Kennebec white potatoes in my coca cola cooler planter box.  I harvested about 7 pounds and the potatoes were decent size.

We have eaten them all week, and they taste so good.  I made home made french fries, potato chips, and garlic mash potatoes.  I am considering replanting them for a fall harvest.

Freshly dug potatoes

Almost 7 lbs

Here they are all clean and ready to go.

Nice pepper harvest this week too.

A few more tomatoes
