Harvesting potatoes is in the middle between hard and easy. Because you have to scape them off, have a bucket to put the potatoes in, and a place to put the compost. You have to have a pitchfork. You put the pitchfork in the ground, but not too close to the potatoes because you could stab them.
There are different types of potatoes. We grew regular potatoes, blue potatoes, and red potatoes. Later we cooked them in boiling water and mashed them up. Then we put cream and milk and butter and food coloring. And then we made flags on our plates for the 4th of July.
You can make potatoes baked, fried, mashed, boiled, chopped, sliced. (Report from Kenard Dansbury.)
