My potatoes

About: how to grow 100 pounds of potatoes in 4 square feet

......................... .........................................................................................

This structure has become the iconic symbol of my plot.  The potatoes seem to be thriving, but i have been slow to keep up with the growth and build up the sides.  They must be constructed on the plot.  As usual i have been procrastinating ...  here is a selfie of me completing one layer this morning ...

...

incidentally a difficult selfie to take with only 2 hands and an iPhone




and, shucks, one of my pumpkins semi intentionally just showed up

....

another view, more colorful, but perhaps harder to parse.


.......................................................................................................

here is what it looked like after the construction ...

and finally my harvest ...



a bit dissapointing for all the work.   actually the one that i planted outside of the structure did better.  Aurelio found those when we were weeding the plot.  Baked them under a chicken and made garlic mashed ... they tasted quite good.
