This potato was harvested from our garden yesterday. I show it here with a French one euro coin and an American quarter to help evaluate the size. Last year our potatoes got the blight and we harvested almost nothing. That patch was quite weedy so this spring my husband went over it well with the rototiller–three times. We were not expecting any sprouts from last year, but some did come up and that is where this lovely specimen was produced. The potatoes we planted this year have also gotten the blight in spite of treating with a copper solution called bouilli bordelaise but they were further along than last year’s so I think we will be able to harvest some for this winter.
