New potatoes

Well it doesn't get any more exciting than this folks! The first batch of real potatoes. Maybe they're a little early, but some of the plants were beginning to wilt. Got about 18kgs. from about 35 plants. Still have 45 plants in field #1. Then there's field #2, which won't be ready for another month or so, that's if they survive the rainy season.

And now the bad news: looks like corn earworm on the now chest high corn
had to pick them off the flowers by hand, the fruit is sprouting silk and looking good though
