Potatoes!

Like I've said before, there is no feeling knowing that you can and have grown your own food. I just harvested my first pair of potatoes and I am still over the moon. I know I am supposed to wait for the plant to die off and then just dig it all up but I could not wait.

These two were sticking more than half-way out of the soil and were begging to be picked. They are about the size of tennis balls. The rest of them are not ready, so I just made sure that the sun would not harm them. I did not see any others sticking out but added more soil on top. At some point, I hope to add many more potatoes to my cooking.
