Harvest Potatoes Early

I have to admit I can't wait for the potato plants to die back. I want to eat potatoes with my green beans as soon as possible, and so does the rest of the family. What to do? Steal them, of course.

Great tip, Phillip!

I confess that I never wait. I may not get all of the potatoes in before the weather gets rough, but we always enjoy the new potatoes.

I thought that sounded so good, I decided to dig in one of my potato bags to see what I could find. I picked the one with blossoms as it looks further along

So I cut it open at the bottom. After digging dirt out for about 15 minutes, and finding nothing. I dumped the whole bag. This is what I found

The largest potasto was 3", so I think its too early for me
But this is what I have

It was very yummy, but I wish there was more potato. Thanks for the recipe, homeshow

The reason I like this article so well is because it is something I practically
'grew up on'. We make a whole 4 quart pan which can last for several days,
depending on how many kids come home to visit & eat! They love it!

Then fried corn bread is easy!

A few sliced cucumbers & green onion as a side dish.
