Papa Pea and I have both had a taste for potatoes lately, most likely because we've been out of them for some time, and it's a smidge bit early yet to harvest all ours in the garden.
I confess to having gone out to the potato rows once or twice in the past month to "steal" a couple, but I've always pilfered some from the two rows of red potatoes.
Today I decided to go excavating for a few in the row of Burbank Russets, a new variety (for us) I planted this year. Touted as a good baking potato, it appealed to me.
Look what I found.
Those two big ones on the left measure 8-1/2" and 9-1/2" long respectively and each weigh about 1-1/2 pounds. Wow. If the rest are anything like this, looks like we may have enough taters for our winter table without any trouble.
Now, would you like a BAKED POTATO with your steak?
