Our early red potatoes are leaping from the earth.  The field crew was out today removing some of the weedy patches that my cultivator missed.  This field is one of two this year, this is in Katama nearSlough Cove Road.  Potatoes always appriciate a new location, theyare a favorite food of the Colorado potato beetle that overwinters in the soil and field edge.  They look as if they only need a couple more days to reach flower.  I am crossing my fingers for some delicious red new potatoes for the last weekend in June.
